Why is this book important?

Teaching young children about stress early is helpful for several reasons:

1.       Developing emotional intelligence: children who understand what stress is and how to identify it are more likely to develop emotional intelligence. This means they are better equipped to understand and manage their own emotions and those of others.

2.       Building resilience: learning about stress and how to manage it can help children build resilience. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity, and it’s an important skill for children to develop to help them navigate the challenges they will face throughout their lives.

3.       Preventing future health problems: chronic stress can have a negative impact on a child’s physical and mental health. By teaching children how to identify and manage stress early, we can help prevent future health problems.

4.       Setting them up for success: learning how to manage stress is an important life skill that can set children up for success in all areas of their lives. Children who are able to manage stress are more likely to perform well academically, socially, and in other areas of their lives.
