It's OK: Being Kind to Yourself When Things Feel Hard
This sweet book teaches children 3–7 the simple and profound power of self-compassion through simple affirmations that can be repeated when things are hard.
All too often kids get down on themselves when they experience things that make them sad, angry, guilty, or jealous. It’s amazing how powerful it can be to move past a difficult emotion when we think about all the other people feeling that same way and show ourselves some much need kindness.
Sometimes I have to do something I don’t want to do. I feel really angry. . . . Then I remember that everyone feels angry sometimes. I put my hand on my heart, and here’s what I say: “It’s OK—I love you. I’m with you today.”
The main story is followed by 10 exercises focused on ways to develop self-compassion, such as Kind Voice, Kind Body, Kind Touch, and Hugging Breath.
