Empathetic advice to help kids when they’re feeling frustrated

When children can’t do something or can’t have something they want, they often feel frustrated. And feeling frustrated can make them feel wound up or angry, tense and hot, or helpless. They might get discouraged, and feel stuck, like it’s not worth trying anymore. Kids need effective strategies to work through their frustration.
This picture book on how to deal with frustration provides practical tools to help kids, such as:
  • Spot the warning signs of frustration
  • Try to calm down
  • Step back from frustration
  • Break a frustrating task down into smaller parts
Children will learn how to look for a different way, ask for help, or let go of their frustration. At the back of the book, kids will find a special section with additional activities to manage their frustration. Also included is a note to adults with advice on helping children recognize frustration and find positive ways to deal with their feelings.
