I Can Handle It! By Laurie Wright

Weekly Trip to the Library

Life is stressful and frustrating. The key to good mental health is learning to cope with stress. Adults often think kids don’t have anything to be stressed about. But children experience stress and anxiety just as much as adults yet lack the maturity to problem solve as well as adults.

One of the most common phrases I hear from frustrated children and adults is, “I can’t do it!” Such negative self talk creates more stress and anxiety rather than encouraging problem solving.

Mantras are a great way to replace negative self talk, and especially helpful for the times when children or adults need to calm themselves.

Reading children’s books with kids is always a great way to help kids learn. This week I recommend I Can Handle It! by Laurie Wright for children who are showing signs of stress, anxiety, frustration, or depression. Your Nanny Kids will incorporate the mindful mantra “I Can Handle It” almost immediately after reading this book.

In a tough situation or when dealing with tough emotions they will think “I can handle it!” Even if they aren’t saying the words out loud, if they learn and practice this mantra it will become a part of their self-talk.

Positive self-talk is incredibly important for improving and maintaining mental health and the mindful mantra books are a way to plant that positivity right into a child’s head. Help your Nanny Kids learn to handle difficult emotions along with the main character in the book named Sebastien, and provide a tool for lifelong confidence.

Depression and anxiety don’t discriminate and our kids need help. I Can Handle It! equips children with a necessary skill to alleviate everyday anxieties that arise in their lives.
