This book is very well written and illustrated and it can be very helpful in assisting children to navigate the emotional ups and downs of everyday life. We are both psychotherapists and heartily recommend this book to all parents of young children.
"Life Isn't Always Black and White" Thought Pad - providing children with opportunities to nurture self-compassion, self-esteem, creativity, mindfulness and positivity.
Description and Benefits
When we have a test or exam to do, or perhaps we have a part in a stage show to perform, we don’t just go ahead and do it. We repeat, we revise, we rehearse. In the same way, when it comes to life’s ups and down, we can do the same. This 50+ page "Life isn't Always Black and White" Thought Pad provides opportunities for pre-teens and teenagers to do just that… practice their thinking and rehearse, rehearse, rehearse! When we feel uncomfortable, we are being provided with an opportunity to nurture our resilience. Pausing, gives us time to think. Writing things down can help organise thoughts for future action. Drawing can nurture mindfulness.
The Thought Pad provides opportunities for young people to get their ideas down on paper. Not only through the tough times they experience but when they want to reflect, be grateful or plan ahead. The pad encompasses pages to nurture their self-compassion, self-esteem, creativity, mindfulness, and positivity. It encourages visualization, gratitude, and the ability to face fears. It is designed to empower them and to strengthen their resilience. Who wouldn’t want a little bit of that?!
This Thought Pad is not "wordy" and particularly benefits children who don't want to read too much or be overwhelmed by content. it offers a starting point for creativity grow and thought processes to flow.
