Book Description

Jan. 15 2009 Instant Help
Children pay close attention to their parents' moods. When parents feel upset, their kids may become anxious, and when parents wind down, children also get the chance to relax. When you feel overwhelmed and stressed, it can be hard to help your child feel balanced. The Relaxation & Stress Reduction Workbook for Kids , written by two child therapists, offers more than fifty activities you can do together as a family to help you and your child replace stressful and anxious feelings with feelings of optimism, confidence, and joy.

You'll learn proven relaxation techniques, including deep breathing, guided imagery, mindfulness, and yoga, and then receive guidance for teaching them to your child. Your child will also discover how taking time to do art and creative projects can create a sense of fulfillment and calm. By completing just one ten-minute activity from this workbook each day, you'll make relaxation a family habit that will stay with both you and your child for a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Use and Extremely Effective Jan. 17 2009
By Ellen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My 10 year old daughter has been experiencing some situational anxiety. She and I began using this workbook together to help her feel more relaxed and in control. At first, she was very skeptical, but we began using the Relaxing through Guided Imagery activities. Within a few nights, she was no longer experiencing the anxiety attacks that prevented her from falling asleep. She now asks for the activities before bed and we have begun to do them as a family. I highly recommend this book. It is easy to use and extremely effective.

I use this book in an individual and group counseling setting! This has great activities for any kid! I think it works especially well with kids that have ADD/ADHD, anger, anxiety, and/or impulse control problems.
Use this book to start teaching your child relaxation and self calming skills early!
