This practical guidebook, with a beautifully-illustrated storybook, enables teachers, parents and professionals to help children aged 4-12 connect with unresolved feelings affecting their behaviour.
This is a guidebook to help children who
- bully or take revenge on others for the pain they have felt themselves
- have become very defensive because something too painful has happened to them
- have hardened their hearts because they have: been too hurt in love; met with too much harshness; witnessed parental violence; been repeatedly hit; been shamed or humiliated; or had too many experiences of not being responded to
- think they have lost their parent's love to someone else and have hardened their heart.
A Wibble Called Bipley features a story for children who have hardened their hearts or become bullies. Bipley is a warm cuddly creature, but someone has broken his heart. He feels so hurt that he decides it is just too painful to ever love again. When he meets some big tough Honks in the wood, they teach him how to harden his heart so that he doesn't have to feel hurt any more. Luckily Bipley meets some creatures that teach him how he can protect himself without hardening his heart.
