A teen version of the #1 Bestselling Coping Skills for Kids Workbook, this version is written specifically with a tween/teen audience (age 11+) in mind. There are 60 coping strategies included in the book, and it’s divided into Coping Styles to make searching for a coping skill easier.
Activity Book: Processing Feelings
This book helps children explore a range of emotions with a variety of activities. The activities help kids identify what they are feeling, and recognize that they can intervene with a coping skill before their emotions become difficult to manage. This book, like All Coping Skills for Kids products is designed for ease of use by parents, caregivers and professionals alike.
Activity Book: My Happiness Journal
When you are feeling sad or upset, a good coping skill to try is thinking of things that make you happy. But it can be hard to remember the good stuff in those tough moments. An easy way to remember is to draw or write about what makes you happy, capture happy memories, and look at keepsakes from those fantastic times. By using this journal, you can keep track of all the things that make you smile and bring you joy.
Activity Book: Distraction Detour
The Coping Skills for Kids Activity Book: Distraction Detour focuses on the Distraction Coping Style – detouring and holding a child’s attention when they might otherwise be fixated or “stuck” on a particular stressor. This coping style focuses on playful, fun activities that relieve worry.
Activity Book: Relaxation Round Up
Children will experience a variety of different emotions as they live and play in the world. They will need coping skills that will work to help them manage their feelings in safe and healthy ways. The strategies that will work will be different, depending on what emotion they are feeling, where they are, and their own personal preferences.
This activity book focuses on Relaxation Coping Style, like Deep Breathing, Mindfulness and Grounding Techniques
Activity Book: Sensational Sensory
Some kids use their sense of smell to more fully enjoy a fresh flower, sweet berries, or the salty ocean. Others prefer to focus on things they see, like shiny leaves swaying in their trees, fluffy clouds in the sky, or twinkling stars at night. Still others prefer to use their sense of touch by enjoying the feel of a smooth stone in their hand, warm sand between their toes, or cool grass beneath their feet.
In the Sensational Sensory Activity book, there are thirty sensory coping skills for kids to try in real life! Sensational Sensory provides three opportunities for the child to try each of the coping skills and subsequently record their experiences on the activity pages.

This book explains how playdates help kids learn social skills, and includes simple tips for setting up successful playdates and a playful home. Plus, I talk about how those imperfect moments are the perfect learning opportunity!
