About the Book

What if your child could take full responsibility for how they feel?
What if your child could exchange negative feelings for positive ones?
Put on these magic glasses and see that no one else can control how you feel.

My Magic Glasses shows children how to take control of the situations they find themselves in on a daily basis. It’s a fun book with serious undertones that teaches children to notice and value their own feelings. Children learn that they are in control of their emotions. Their emotions are not in control of them. They learn to respond from their heart instead of using only their head.

Using a pair of glasses as a tool, children see another perspective and are able to make deliberate choices that feel good. Rather than reacting to life events, children learn to simply take action which is empowering for them.

Children will learn to...
notice how they feel
stop blaming others for how they feel
act rather than react to situations
make deliberate choices for themselves
be confident
let go of anger
listen to their heart

Kim Raymond, a local school guidance counselor, states that,”kids will find it so easy to relate to the ideas in My Magic Glasses and apply the techniques offered to real life situations. It will be a great resource for guidance lessons in the classroom as well as a valuable tool for individual sessions with kids.”

My Magic Glasses strongly supports the Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) required by the current Common Core State Standards and is sure to become a favorite for children, teachers and parents alike.
