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.
