About the book

Does your child appear to put themselves down frequently?

Perhaps they have a tendency to think negatively and doubt their abilities?

Do they worry about what other children think about them?

These could be signs that your child is struggling with self-acceptance.

This practical guide combines proven cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness methods used by child psychologists in schools with simple activities to help your child to build on their self-belief. 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 Glow – 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.
