Book review

Relax Kids: When I’m Feeling…

"It helps with everything" is my 11 year-old daughter's very enthusiastic review of this soon-to-be-released flip book. She has it next to her when doing maths homework, as something to fiddle with, as this helps her to concentrate, but she also follows the exercises and finishes with a happy "I am Amazing" rather than the usual stomp and flounce from the table. So that is a wonderful change. She takes it to school and is allowed to have it on her desk, again as something to fiddle with while she listens to the teacher, but also to help her focus on tasks, as she finds schoolwork tricky.

After a certain age, children don't really want to take advice from their parents or carers, so although it is very easy for us to say "just take your time and do your homework calmly" they've heard it from us a hundred times, and so it's likely that we will be ignored. But, get an expert onboard with lots more ideas, jazz that advice up with bright colours, fun fonts, cute images, and an interactive element where you mix and match the exercises to suit your situation and mood and present it all in a fun, imaginative way and they might just take notice!
