I Can Handle It
Over ten years as a Kindergarten teacher, I noticed increasingly more kids coming to school each year struggling with learned helplessness. Kids AREN’T helpless, they often have never been taught how to handle life’s tricky emotions or encouraged to solve everyday problems on their own. My students and the growing epidemic motivated me to write a book that would help!
What I had was a dawning realization that kids were in trouble and that there weren’t enough resources to help them. The need to help grew until I couldn’t ignore it any longer.
I re-worked the manuscript, with help from a great group of mamas, and figured out how to get the thing published. Turned out, in 2016 getting published was easy because you just did it yourself! 2016 was awesome.
