Review quote

This is definitely a timely read for me with tantrums in out home at a peak during the crazy Christmas season. It was really interesting to learn about reasons for kids having tantrums and ways that we can help them be 'just right'. I had never though of it like this before. A really insightful book by someone who obviously has a lot of experience in this area. I look forward to seeing more from this author! This is an exciting concept! As an early childhood music teacher, striking the balance between sensory input while creating a fun and inviting space is a big challenge. Many teachers are unaware of the potentially extreme effects of sensory overload. I'm looking forward to more of these resources, so many little lives will benefit from this tool! Great book! Insightful! My 3 kids seem out of control despite constant love and coaching. I think this book really unlocks the child's ability to help themselves! Incredibly helpful As the Christmas season approaches and my 4 kids are going through major tantrums or as I now understand various "fast" and "slow" stages - there minds can't keep up with their bodies and their is sensory overload, this book was a godsend. It's probably a bit fast and I'd love a little more detail but watch the videos embedded because they really helped. As we know in our crazy busy lives happy kids, happy life! I found this practical, easy to read and definitely worth every bit of the 99c I paid! There is never going to be a quick fix but having techniques that help you understand your kids behaviour and curb it before it's way out of hand or frustrates you so you exacerbate the situation is priceless! - A great resource for teachers, especially if you value improving relationships with your students, and improving student outcomes. A must-read!! What a great book! Short and to the point. You don't have to read volumes to try and work out what the formula is. I'm a tired parent that cares dearly for my kids - I need answers yesterday! This book unlocks the power of self awareness in children. Brilliant!
