Children experience a range of emotions but don’t always know what the feeling they’re experiencing is, or how to deal with it. Frustration is one of those feelings.
Children can get frustrated when obstacles get between them and what they want to do or have. They get frustrated when something gets in the way and keeps them from achieving something. Not being listened to, not understanding or being able to make something work. When things don’t quite go right, or when it’s not fair. These things are frustrating for children and in response, they can get discouraged and / or angry.
Step Back from Frustration helps children learn how to manage frustration. It explains how and why we get frustrated, and why we think, feel and do the things we do when we’re frustrated. It explains how children can learn to manage their frustration and get help if they need it. With this book, children can learn solutions that really work so that they feel less overwhelmed and upset and more in control.
Each book in the ‘Kids Can Cope’ series is backed up with practical activities for the child to complete and discuss, consolidating and personalising learning, plus extra notes for parents or teachers.
Supports PSHE teaching in the National Curriculum, and encourages both self development and empathy for others, while fostering resilience and giving advice on how to seek help.
