What Readers Say
Easy to read, easy to understand. I bought several and shared them liberally.
The non-shaming title is an easy avenue to get the recipient started reading and talking.
Very few of us have grown-up with emotional literacy. Having a source of easy answers for those questions you have nobody to ask is a great gift.
Questions like: What do I do about feelings like anger, grief, scare and jealousy? Learning how to say”No!” is another area where we can use some options. We outgrow the two-year old ability to say “No”, but don’t know how to turn it back on in a healthy way. Learning “Who Is Responsible for What?” is a good section to start the healthy process of saying “NO.”
By the time you get to the end of the book knowing how to define a problem and solve it will be well in hand. The author also reminds the reader that this can be fun, that finding humor and laughter in the process makes life easier.
Give this book a read and you will find yourself going back to it over and over again. You may also find yourself quoting it to your friends.
