Sometimes I Don't Like To Talk (But Sometimes I Can't Keep Quiet) (shyness): Extreme shyness is not always seen as a serious problem, but research tells us that shy children are more likely to have difficulty in school, are more susceptible to depression, and even have more health problems than other children. Early intervention is the key to helping shy children reach the social and academic milestones that can shape their sense of self-worth.
This is an engaging story about Emmy, who is quiet as a mouse in school. In fact, the other children call her little mouse, a name that only makes her feel worse. Emmy thinks that everyone is mad at her for being so quiet, until a counselor helps her parents and teacher understand that Emmy needs gentle encouragement, not sarcasm or teasing.
Sometimes I Drive My Mom Crazy (But I Know She's Crazy About Me) (ADHD):This warm, humorous, and true-to-life story of a young ADHD boy addresses the many difficult and frustrating issues that kids like him confront everyday - from sitting still in the classroom, to remaining calm, to feeling "different" from other children. This book takes an amusing look at how this youngster develops a sense of self-worth by learning to deal with his problems with the help of the adults who care about him. Hailed by parents and educators as one of the best books written to help motivate ADHD children to cope with their problem in a positive way.
Sometimes I Feel Like I Don't Have Any Friends (But Not So Much Anymore) (making friends):This psychological storybook is designed to be read by an individual child or to stimulate group discussions. In this book, Mark finds that his inability to make friends has made him isolated and lonely. It is not so much that he doesn't have the desire to make friends, but rather that he doesn't have the skills. With the help of his parents and friends, Mark learns the importance of good listening, good manners, and cooperation.
This book, like the others in the Self-Esteem series, is designed to give children a role model for positive and realistic change, and to help them find new ways to cope with their problems and concerns.
Sometimes I Get Sad (But Now I Know What Makes Me Happy):Sometimes I Get Sad tells the story of Sara, who has good reason to be upset. Sara's parents have moved to a new neighborhood, and she has trouble adjusting to her new school. Her grandmother has become ill and moved into her home. Now, her mother seems to be preoccupied much of the time and is giving Sara less attention. Like many children, Sara just can't seem to cope with all of these problems at once.
Fortunately, Sara gets the help that she needs. With the aid of a counselor and by meeting with a group of children who have had similar problems, Sara learns how to cope. Now, when she gets sad, she knows how to make herself happy again.
Sometimes I Like to Fight (But I Don't Do It Much Anymore) (anger control):Sometimes I Like to Fight tells the story of Douglas, whose aggressive play and rough-housing turns into a more serious problem in controlling his anger. As adults find his behavior less and less acceptable, he becomes more and more unhappy and is not shy about expressing it. Fortunately, Douglas' school counselor intervenes, and after a variety of changes at home and in school, his behavior gets much better.
This book is designed to be read by children with similar problems, to help them see that there are ways that they can learn to understand their anger and redirect their need to fight about everything and with everybody.
