7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Meg W. on Sept. 13 2009
Format: Paperback
Once again, Dawn Huebner has written a book that is easily read and understood by children ages 6-12. This book helps negitive thinking children understand how their negitive thinking makes them feel bad and only encourages more negitive thinking. The book also suggests ways to correct negitive thinking and become more positive thinking. I have used this book in my office and found it to be a helpful resource.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Rachel on March 31 2011
Format: Paperback
This book helped both me and my son. It helped me because I no longer feel like my son is an oddity that just focuses on the negative all the time and grumbles all the time. If there is a book written addressing these issues with children, then it must be pretty common! This led to me not feeling so helpless and empowered me to try this program with my son. We read through the whole book and I have to say that his grumbling has improved. I now hear him saying to his 2 year old brother, who is in the whiny throes of toddler hood, to "jump that hurdle". We still need to practice the skills and I need to remind him of the strategies more often, but so far, so good!

I highly recommended for children who struggle with seeing the positive, or may struggle with ODD. My son is in grade 3, so it is suitable for anyone grade 3 or higher.

Excellent Series - Very Easy to Use and Understand Nov. 17 2007
By Elaine Lo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This "What to Do" series was very useful to me as a parent. It explains complex psychological ideas at a child's level without condescending to them and then attempts to help them learn how deal with those strong emotions.

I purchased this book and What to Do When You Worry Too Much: A Kid's Guide to Overcoming Anxiety (What to Do Guides for Kids) after my 5-year old was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. It has helped her and her then 8-year old brother work through the many adjustments in our family after the diagnosis. We went through the book together and then talked about the activities that might help them deal with how they felt. The simple, clear explanations were a great starting point for discussion. Not everything "worked" nor did we focus on "solving" these emotions--rather we used the books to help the kids see that they are not alone and that there are things they can do when they feel trapped by strong emotions.

My daughter is now almost 7 and still takes the Grumbling book out to read it over. She knows she does have things to complain about in her life, but also that she doesn't want them to take over her life. I have also just purchased What to Do When Your Temper Flares: A Kid's Guide to Overcoming Problems With Anger (What to Do Guides for Kids)which she is anxious to read! How many books on these tough topics can you say THAT about?

If you have intense, thoughtful, strong-willed kids, this approach to the perpetual problems of grumbling, worrying and (I hope) anger management will help. And even if they won't read it, it will help you know how to talk about those feelings.

P.S. Another good book is Who Moved My Cheese? For Kids I know it sounds corny but change is a big stressor for my kids so that book helped address these emotions too.

Engaging for Young Readers Sept. 27 2006
By Beth Salvi-Hudgins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book tackles an unusual and important topic for children- negativity. In a fun and very child-friendly format, the author uses metaphors, stories, and examples to explain to children what negativity is and how they can transform their negative thinking into more positive thinking. The learning is reinforced by fun activities and art experiences. As a mother and social worker, I strongly recommend this book to other parents, social workers, and guidance counselors.

Well done and good for even young children Jan. 17 2007
By Bumbershoot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I wanted this workbook to engage my therapy clients better than it did. They didn't throw the book at me, but it only held their interest for about10 minutes and most do not care too much to color or draw where the workbook calls for it. I agree with them, in that the interactive part of the book (the you-fill-it in part) is not compelling. HOWEVER, the subject matter is not really covered in any other therapeutic workbook that I have seen/reviewed/owned. The main topic is of negativity vs. positivity in a child's daily life. Great for kids with depression, anger problems, anxiety disorders, and ...the average kids!

Created for Ages 6-12 June 23 2010
By Veggie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just received three of the books in this series. The font is nice and large and the readings and activities look simple but fantastic. I'm writing to let everyone know that on the books it says "Ages 6-12" but Amazon gives them a reading level of 9-12. They would be perfect to read even to a 5 year old.

Highly recommended for parents and therapists alike May 11 2007
By Katherine Efros - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a child clinical psychologist who regularly recommends books to parents to help provide reassuring information and practical tips to assist their children between sessions. My 12 year-old also loved this book and found a lot of good suggestions. Not only is the book easy to read and understand, it provides "homework" activities which allow a personalized approach and encourage active involvement by the child in overcoming a natural tendency toward negativity. I highly recommend this book!
