About the book

Does your child often feel isolated, do they struggle to get involved in social situations or are they simply shy?

Are they nervous about what people think of them, or maybe they’re just a little unsure of how they feel about themselves and have low self-confidence?

These could be signs that your child is experiencing low self-esteem.

This practical guide combines proven cognitive-behavioural therapy methods used by child psychologists in schools with simple activities to help your child grow their self-esteem. It’s aimed at children aged 7–11 because a lot happens in these years that can impact a child’s sense of self-worth, not just now but for years to come.

Your child will be guided, with the help of little monster – a friendly and supportive character they can identify with – through fun and engaging activities which are interspersed with useful tips, inspirational statements and practical information for parents.
