This book teaches children the skills that build self-esteem. The belief is common in children that they "have to" feel a certain way "because of" what happens. As long as they attribute the quality of their emotional state to some force outside themselves, they remain blind to their role in creating their day and feel powerless to change it. We do children a great service by giving them skills and knowledge for taking control of their inner emotional environment regardless of "what happens." Based on concepts found in Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET) and NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP), Thinking, Changing, Rearranging guides children in examining their own thinking, inner language, and belief systems to learn for themselves how they create "bad days" and "good days." Counselors, teachers, and parents will find this book a valuable tool too.
