    Totally Chill: My Complete Guide to Staying Cool
    $21.95

    Life can be a lot easier - help children to learn new skills for handling their stress.

    Mom's Choice Award Winner!

    When parenting, teaching and working with children who have social, emotional, and/or sensory challenges, we often put the emphasis on learning new skills, but stress management skills are often not addressed. This is unfortunate, because stress creates barriers to the very things we are trying to teach. Besides, it can lead to meltdowns. In short, it is crucial that children learn and develop skills to manage their stress as independently as possible. Totally Chill: My Complete Guide to Staying Cool is a stress management workbook for children. Fun graphics and an interactive style make it ideal for children grades 3 through middle school.
