Self-Help Book for Kids Teaches Them to Understand Their Emotions

 

The self-help book for children "Understanding Myself: A Kid´s Guide to Intense Emotions and Strong Feelings" offers advice to children on how to better understand and deal with their feelings and skills.

The book is also available as the iPad app "The Grouchies", which is ideal for children between the ages 4 to 8.

"For about the last 30 years, there´s been a growing body of research that says that promoting children´s social and emotional growth has positive effects on their behavior and positive effects on academic performance," Roger Weissberg explains.

  or maybe..  
 
parents could talk to, and be involved with their children on a regular basis instead of shoving an app in their face or throwing a book at them......
oh wait, too much effort taken from facebooking for that..
im all for supporting and encouraging your kids to understand their emotions and provide them with tools that allow them to do so. but you dont really need books or apps for that

You´re assuming that all parents are qualified to teach these skills to their children.

After hearing this weekend of a woman whose mother would enlist her as a shoplifting accomplice, who went on to have her first child at 16 and three more before age 20, and whose children now just squat in their front yard instead of bothering with toilets, I´d say there´s at least a niche market for this kind of book ...

Emotions aren´t skills. All they would need to do it talk. but I agree there are some terrible parents out there. Unfortunately it is the uneducated that see the value of education the least. I think the powerful/wealthy likes it that way, so the plebs stay stuck in the rut while opportunities are restricted to the educated, the disparity in education in Wealthy Americans and Poor Americans makes it apparent to other nations of the need for Good universal education.

While emotions may not really be skills, I would consider the ability to manage them as a skill. I know the title says, "Understand Their Emotions", which doesn´t really tell us much of the book´s content, but if it discusses anything about dealing with certain emotions (anger), it could be helpful. From the looks of some of the responses it would probably be helpful if parents also gave it a read =P

It is true that some parents need to get more involved though, and that maybe sitting and talking now and then could be just as helpful in the emotional growth of a child. If you get on Youtube and watch kids flipping out about their WoW accounts, you´ll see the very people that would benefit from it. There´s one kid who just goes nuts in a video. His brother hides a camera in his room, and when he´s informed by his parents that his connection has been cancelled, he goes off the rails. He even sticks a shoe up his ass, for whatever reason. Anyway, I know I took this to another place, but you owe it to yourself to watch it, bwha.

Here´s a kid who needs to understand his emotions, and deal with them accordingly, haha.
