When parents feel overwhelmed and stressed, it can be hard to help their child feel balanced. The Relaxation & Stress Reduction Workbook for Kids, written by two child therapists, offers more than fifty activities for families to replace stressful and anxious feelings with feelings of optimism, confidence, and joy. These activities include proven relaxation techniques, including deep breathing, guided imagery, mindfulness, and yoga.
