I Can Handle It!: 50 Confidence-Building Stories to Empower Your Child
by Susan Jeffers, PhD & Donna Gradstein
160 pages Jeffers Press September 2006 Paperback    

Having a six-year-old of my own, I know how helpful it is to have books around that give solid advice to parents about difficult and challenging situations we may encounter. What makes I Can Handle It! such a good book to have around is the fact that it is meant to be read by and to children, as a means of letting THEM know what they can do to handle these situations.

The fifty stories included are designed to speak to kids on their level, helping them to boost their confidence and self-esteem. From divorce to bullying to being different to losing a loved one, this book covers the entire gamut of experiences kids do, and will, encounter as they become functional adults.

Susan Jeffers, author of the bestselling Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, presents each story with a simple style and tone to make it relatable and understandable to children. This is not a book for parents on parenting. Itís a book for kids on handling being a kid, the tough times, the sad times, and the scary times.

I Can Handle It! is a good tool for any parent who wants to give their child the gift of being able to help themselves. By reading these stories to your child, or letting them read the stories on their own, parents can be assured that they are empowering their kids to make better choices, work positively with their emotions, and process the world around them in a way that will make them stronger and more confident.
