Page Count 40
Gentle, supportive, and straightforward, Sometimes When I’m Worried describes a child’s experience with worry and the many ways it can surface, as well as how her sister and their two dads help her cope with the feeling. “Sometimes when I’m worried, my tummy feels funny. I get hot and sweaty. My legs jiggle like jelly.”
Along with the main character, young children learn ways to cope with worry, which can be a challenging emotion. "Daddy says, ‘Sometimes when we’re worried, it’s hard to control our thoughts and feelings.’ He says I might feel calmer if I find something I can control. He asks if I want to count to ten or do some belly breathing.”
A special section for adults offers more information on how children of differing ages express worry and anxiety, and how to help children manage these feelings in healthy and empowering ways.
Sometimes When collection
With quiet, sensitive illustrations, the Sometimes When collection helps young children work through big feelings, such as sadness and anger. The stories are accessible to children and grounded in research from an author with over thirty years of experience as a clinical psychologist. A special section at the back of each book provides more information for adults and activities to help young children work through their feelings.
