About the book

Does your child appear nervous in social situations?

Perhaps they worry a lot about what other people will think of them, or are sad and withdrawn?

Do they seem reluctant to partake in their usual interests and hobbies?

These could be signs that your child is struggling with low confidence.

This practical guide combines cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness methods with simple activities to help your child to improve their self-confidence. It’s aimed at children aged 7–11 because a lot happens in these years that can impact a child’s emotional well-being, not just now but for years to come.

Your child will be guided, with the help of Pip – 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.
