So here we are. I have to find a way to help her manage her fears, her concerns, her worries. I have to learn how to manage my own emotions to her fears, her concerns, her worries so I can be the mother she deserves.
I put out a plea for help on a closed Facebook page. When I call out for help, its a sign that I'm at my wit's end already and that I've tried multiple things to no avail. I got some interesting advice, some book recommendations, and whatnot, but one thing in particular stood out to me. Somebody mentioned a resiliency program for children to help them learn to weather the inevitable difficulties of life. So I did research and I bought some books.
These books in particular:
|From L to R: The Optimistic Child appears to be written by a psychologist whose work is the basis for many resiliency programs for children, Freeing Your Child from Negative Thinking has some pretty good reviews that hail it as very practical, Socially Strong Emotionally Secure is supposed to be full of activities to help build resiliency.|
For those of you that have been there and done that, I'd love to hear any tips you may have.
