Relax Kids: Press Here
By: Marneta Viegas - Our Street Books, $21.95
Description: This book is a fun instruction book - helping children take control of their physical and emotional wellbeing and see the connection between the two.
There are 40 buttons in the body, one to help children relax, another to help them feel joyful and another to help them concentrate.
Verdict: First off, this is yet another incredibly expansive, thought-provoking, colorfully inventive and wholly creative genius of a book from the uber talented Marneta Viegas!
My daughter has three (3) rugrats and each one has their own special (medical) disposition and thus can be a real rodeo of characters at any given time!
So, and as we all know, being a parent can be tough, but it is also just as tough (if not more so) on the children, who have (and showcase) these medical disposition characteristics (all bundled up within blankets of uncertainty and stressful worry).
For they just do not know yet how to rightly handle such situations and so their small situations begin to spiral (and in most cases rapidly), thus through this book and some simple self care acts, Marneta intuitively provides instant, and calming relief steps to take (for both the child and the parent, of course).
Hence, author Marneta Viegas has culled together a book that not only seemingly covers all aspects of how a physical and emotional wellbeing can be most times connected, which leads to a whole other set of emotive situation, but that we have a so-called energy button ready for all occasions!
In short, Press Here showcases the fact that our brains have a power button and that within its stages, if used properly given the situation to hand, that by simply breathing correctly and pressing it into action (constructively) all that built up anguish and negativity, in general, can quickly be quelled.
Trust me when I say that no matter how rampantly your wee ones brain is cycling, their feelings spiraling minute by minute about this, that and the other, Marneta’s prose within Relax Kids: Press Here - Pressure Points For Instant Simple Self Care (which was lovingly designed by Amber Sutton) is a MUST-HAVE, and powerful resource for all parents that have children showing signs of, or are currently going through worrying growths of messy and confusing emotions and lives ie: being human.
