With the Help of Pip the Friendly Monster, this Book Guides Children in Social and Emotional Learning

Does your child appear nervous in social situations? Perhaps they express worries about what other people will think of them, or are sad and withdrawn? Do they seem reluctant to take part in their usual interests and hobbies? These could be signs that your child is struggling with low confidence.



This practical guide combines cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness methods with simple activities to help your child improve their self-confidence and self-esteem. Children experience so many highs and lows during their primary school years that can impact their emotional well-being, not just now, but for years to come.

Your child will be guided, with the help of Pip—a friendly and supportive character they can identify with—through fun and engaging activities  interspersed with useful tips, inspirational statements, and practical information for parents.

Topics include:

Recognizing signs of low and high self-confidence
Understanding “self-talk”
Using quick confidence boosters
Learning mindfulness and meditation
Practicing assertiveness
Sitting with tricky emotions
Exercising, eating healthy, and sleeping
Creating a confidence action plan
And more!


Activities include creating a glitter jar, coloring a mood tracker, practicing one-minute visualizations, learning breathing techniques, and making a confidence box.
