  1. A Mum of a 12 year old


    This book is amazing. To anyone who has a child with social anxiety, shyness, any form of social inability, I would highly recommend this book.My daughter is sweet, funny, intelligent, generous, kind and so much more. But not many people used to know this because her social anxiety kept her locked in her fear bubble. Thanks to this book, this is starting to change.Caroline provides background, logic and information to support activities that can be accomplished easily by even the most anxious child. The instructions make sure that the parent is aware of the need for a step by step approach. And it is this approach within the activities that allows the child to build their social knowledge and skills to a point where, even if they are anxious, they still function socially.It truly is heartbreaking to hear your child say they have no friends and don’t know how to make them. This book has changed all that for my child who was so socially anxious she could not look at someone who asked if they could sit with her.Now, she actively starts conversations (yes, she is still nervous but smiles her way through it). She has friends in each different class due to her new tendency to smile and say hi. Such simple agreeable behaviours that make such an important difference to self esteem.I had no problem with my child doing the activities in this book despite the fact that we have tried similar books in the past.Caroline really gets it and knows how to get the socially-challenged child into a more social state of mind.Thanks Caroline, I have already recommended this book to 2 other people and am sure I will be recommending it to more.

    It was getting exhausting parenting but I have switched to coaching and it ‘feels’ better. Maybe I won’t know for 20 years if it ‘was’ effective- that is the challenge in all parenting advice. Lots of ‘feel’ good parenting advice has since been debunked. Coaching and agile is also effective at work so that’s also why I’m going with for now.

    Who knew that play is really work?
    I set out on this journey in the hopes of becoming a better parent. But, this book turned out helping me as a person. Turns out that the advice in this book is applicable to adults as well if you just interpret play as work and toys as opportunities. I gave it 5 stars to encourage others to read it and take advantage of all that has to offer.

    I would love to see a version of this book dedicated to parents or adults looking for self-healing. Today it looks more like being written for parents who work with a therapist for their children. Nevertheless, a usefull book fir everybody who needs to understand himself or others.

    A Must Read for ALL Parents and, well, for all HUMANS
    Everyone wishes there was a manual for helping your children connect with others. THIS IS IT! While reading the very thoughtful, detailed and even illustrated strategies to lead your child towards social success and emotional management, you can’t help but wish 1, you had had this for when your kids were younger, and 2, you yourself had learned this when you were younger. Every human being on the planet needs these skills and frankly they can be utilized just as easily by adults as by children. These are essential life skills, tools and attitudes that aren’t innate within us, we must learn them, and if you weren’t taught, you simply don’t have them, even now as an adult. It’s never too late however to learn have meaningful connections and friendships. This book is a bible on how to help your children (and yourself) manage socially. THANK YOU Caroline! What a gift to our children, and the world.
