I’m Just a Kid
A Social-Emotional Book about Self-Regulation
by Chandele Morris
illustrated by Jeric Tan
What can Ben do when he gets angry or upset? What does his mom do when Ben does not know how to calm himself down?
“Ahhhh, it’s not working!” Have you ever been so frustrated that you just want to scream? Ben is a kid who loves to play, especially with his puzzles, which help him learn and grow. But he often experiences many BIG emotions when things don’t go his way. Like many other kids, he has to learn different ways to help him cope with his anger so he can calm himself down.
In I’m Just a Kid, Ben’s big emotions can be overwhelming, but with a little help from Mom, he learns how to engage more mindfully, self-regulate, and develop emotional resilience.
This is a must-have book for parents and children. It teaches kids about emotions, anger management, and self-regulation, and it is a wonderful social-emotional tool for parents, counselors, and teachers!
