Determining whether your child is frustrated is not as simple as saying, "If you're frustrated and you know it clap your hands!" Often the problem is covered up by temper tantrums, sulkiness, acting out and tears. So what is a parent to do?
Wearing his psychological cape "Superhero", Child-Psychologist, Dr. John Irvine, has come to save the day! With his new book Helping Young Children Manage Frustration & Anger, the respected Australian icon has come to the aid of distraught parents and educators. Dr. John has accomplished this by teaming up with WorryWoo creator, Andi Green, to create their second companion book to her WorryWoo Monster series.This time, educator/ psychologist, Irvine, concentrates on Twitch, The Monster of Frustration. He begins by explaining that frustration cannot be pigeon holed into a one size fits all classification. Instead, Dr. Irvine explains how each child may display a different set of behaviors. To find out if your child is frustrated, the author has devised a series of behavioral assessment questions.
Once you have completed these and determined which type of Twitch you're dealing with, you're on your way to making use of the given exercises for his/her specific needs.
Subtitled A practical guide for parents and educators to help their little Twitches, this book presents delightful drawings, fun exercises and competent information for parents and teachers. It offers an opportunity to see your child in a different light, deal with minor issues before they become problems, and most important, creates a positive shared experience!
