Everybody likes to feel good but it's normal to be sad, angry, or frustrated when things don't go the way you want them to. Many kids with ADHD have really strong feelings that make it hard for them to control their behavior. While others may think they are "over-reacting," children with ADHD are often less self-observant and more reactive, meaning it is harder for them to understand and control their feelings.


Learning to Feel Good and Stay Cool offers practical tools to help kids with ADHD manage and reduce unwanted feelings and to develop daily habits that can help them feel good and function well. Illustrated with cartoons that will hold children's interest, the book is divided into sections that can be read in smaller portions. Also includes a note and resources for parents.

About the Author:

Judith M. Glasser, PhD, is a clinical psychologist who has worked with children and their families for over 30 years. She specialises in the assessment and treatment of AD/HD in children. For many years Dr. Glasser has been interested in the different kinds of difficulties children experience when they have AD/HD. Many of the children she works with struggle with learning how to handle their feelings; this book is for them.

Kathleen Nadeau, PhD, is a clinical psychologist who has specialised in working with kids and adults with ADHD for many years. She is the founder and director of the Chesapeake ADHD Center in Silver Spring, MD, and the author of many books on ADHD for kids, teens, adults, and professionals. Dr. Nadeau is a frequent lecturer on topics related to ADHD, both in the United States and abroad.

Charles Beyl creates humorous illustrations for books, magazines, and newspapers from his studio high atop a nineteenth-century Pennsylvania farm house.

Review:

Sadness for many children can be like, say, a mud puddle. Sadness for children with ADHD, however, can be more like an entire ocean of permanent black ink. That s because children with ADHD generally have an even tougher time dealing with emotions than others. Their reactions may be more intense or they may display a seeming over-reaction to a seemingly small issue. The thing is, the issue doesn t feel small to them and the emotions can loom large, like a monstrous ocean. And that s exactly why Judith Glasser and Kathleen Nadeau created the book Learning to Feel Good and Stay Cool: Emotional Regulation Tools for Kids with AD/HD. The book kicks off with a rundown on common emotions complete with a pop quiz of a scowling face or a happy grin to help kids learn to recognize them. Cartoons proliferate throughout the entire book, as do interactive exercises and super-short chapters, making the book itself an ADHD-friendly read. Geared for kids ages 6 to 11, the book is set up to read in tandem with parents, although older children may do well reading it on their own. A few special notes for parents and exercises for parents at kids at the end round out the tome. - --Ryn Gargulinksi, AnxietyFreeChild.com
The strategies have a lot to do with teaching resilience--aren't all strategies geared toward teaching this! Good to know this book is out there. -- Michelle Garcia Winner, Founder and CEO of Social Thinking

Presented in bite-sized pieces, clear and encouraging, this handy guide to emotional regulation is packed with good ideas. From recognizing the slippery slope to the aptly named Upset Zone to figuring out what to do once there, children with AD/HD (and their non-AD/HD siblings and peers) will benefit from the many strategies presented by Dr. Glasser and Dr. Nadeau. For both children and the adults in their lives, working through this readable book will be time well spent. ----Dr. Dawn Huebner, clinical psychologist and author of What To Do When You Worry Too Much

In Learning to Feel Good and Stay Cool, Judith Glasser and Kathleen Nadeau have written an amazingly clear, helpful and non-judgmental resource for kids (and their parents) who have any difficulty managing or regulating their emotions. Glasser and Nadeau have found a very effective way to describe and explain to kids, in a way that they can relate to and understand, what emotions are, how different emotions feel and what causes them. They then provide specific strategies that kids can use to feel good, recognize times when they are becoming upset and find ways to calm down. In simple, clear, understandable and sensitive language, they provide guidelines for kids to use feel good tools to manage difficult emotional experiences, again enabling kids to understand how to help themselves and use guidance from others as necessary. The illustrations, charts, fill-in exercises, reminders and summary games further enhance this remarkable book. Reading this remarkable book provided me with new insights and ideas that I can use when working with parents. I highly recommend it for kids, their parents and any professionals who are helping them. ----Pat Harvey, LCSW-C DBT Parent Coach, Consultant and Trainer, Co-author,Parenting a Child who Has Intense Emotions

These strategies have a lot to do with teaching resilience as well - aren't all strategies geared towards teaching this? Great to know your book is out there." --Michelle Garcia Winner, Founder and CEO of Social Thinking®

Learning to Feel Good and Stay Cool" provides the tools that kids need when they are upset. By offering concrete examples, Glasser and Nadeau not only help kids react when situation arise, but also teach them how to design an action plan to recognize triggers and avoid problems in the future. Written in language kids can understand, this book offes the reassurance that life can get better. ---- Patricia O. Quinn, MD, Developmental Pediatrician, Washington, DC

I was so delighted to receive my advanced copies of your wonderful book in the mail yesterday! I immediately devoured every page of it! I love the way it is so clearly written in a way that children can understand and feel good about themselves, "normalizing" their feelings, as well as being task oriented. I recognized much of the advice that you have given to me and my family over the years, and as you know I feel so lucky to have found you all those years ago, and have an undying appreciation for all of you help. I only wish that I had something like this when I was a child. --Pat Swanson, AD/HD client in Arlington, VA

This book is a practical guide for parents, clinicians, school counselors who are trying to help children with AD/HD learn how to feel good, how to problem-solve, and how to take charge of their feelings while minimizing their upsets. Why we like it: This book has some wonderful ideas for elementary school aged children to use when they are feeling overwhelmed by their emotions. There is also a nice section in the back for parents to assist their children with their emotional regulation. Illustrations are friendly. --National Parenting Publication Awards, 2014 Honor Title
