Since 1979 Parenting Press has been committed to offering "Parenting Classics," books of enduring value and relevance in this ever-changing world. Our goal is to offer useful books that teach practical life skills to children and parents, as well as those who care for children.
An important part of this goal is teaching Emotional Literacy because all too often kids' feelings get ignored. Helping children acknowledge their feelings, and then distinguish between these feelings and actions, will help them to better express who they are now and later in life.
