Everybody feels angry

Has someone ever taken something that belongs to you? Have you ever been angry and shouted? How did you feel? Did you clench your fists?

Read about Sophie and Ethan, and what they did when they felt angry. With a mix of stories, questions for the reader, and advice, this book focuses on why children may feel a certain way and how they can deal with those feelings. With fun, engaging illustrations the book reassures young readers, providing them with a vocabulary to express and understand their feelings as they grow up and encounter different situations.

​Evidence-based interventions for children with challenging behaviour

When a child has difficulties eating or sleeping, or throws frequent tantrums, many parents cross their fingers and hope it's a phase to be outgrown soon.

But when they persist, challenging behaviours can follow children to school, contributing to academic problems, social difficulties, and further problems in adolescence and adulthood.

This book provides lots of useful tools and ideas to help with the daily challenges.
