Below are some workbooks I have developed with techniques I have used with my own child. Before introducing them to your child, take a look and have a thorough read. Are the questions age-appropriate? Will your child understand what is being asked of them? Adjust questions and the frequency of workbook usage depending on the age, understanding and overall needs of your child. Use the workbooks to open up conversations with your child(ren) and to explore their thoughts and feelings without judgement. Click the images to download the free PDFs and print them off.
3 questions every day for a week. Doing this frequently will encourage your child(ren) to take notice of their thoughts and feelings.

Use these worksheets to help your child through their thoughts and feelings.
