"Sometimes days are hard. We can feel angry, sad, or even worried. Big feelings happen to everyone. When you notice difficult feelings, you can be kind to yourself. Just like a good friend, being kind to yourself can help you feel better even when things are the hardest! Children can practice along with this story that teaches them how to be self-compassionate with proven skills to support resiliency and emotional wellbeing. The key elements of Mindful Self Compassion (a program created by Dr. Kristen Neff and Dr. Christopher Germer) include mindfulness, common humanity and kindness. Self compassion supports increased happiness and the ability to bounce back from difficulties. As with self-compassion for adults, this sweet story encourages children to be kind to themselves simply because they are hurting. Imagine the ongoing benefits of teaching children to be their own best friend! Afterword by leading self-compassion expert Dr. Christopher Germer, co-founder the Mindful Self Compassion Program and author of best-selling books The Mindful Path of Self-Compassion and The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook. Additional exercises for parents or educators to teach children to explore ways to be kind to themselves are also included"-- Provided by publisher.
