Book Description

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 guide book to help children who suffer the effects of:fFamily breakdown, separation and divorce, and witnessing parents fighting. It is suitable for Parents who suffer from depression or anxiety, mental or physical ill-health, alcohol or drug addiction.

Monica Plum's Horrid Problem is a story for children with troubled parents. Monica Plus has a horrid problem. It gets everywhere: into her school work, her dreams, her ability to make friends. People keep telling her to cheer up. She can't.  She feels as if she is carrying around some very heavy luggage. Then one day, a helpful teacher sees how miserable Monica is, and tells her about the knights in the world, who are posing as people.

In a whispering wood, Monica finds some of these knights. They teach her how to make her problem far less horrid. In particular they show her how to cope when other people's problems weigh you down and make you feel miserable. Most importantly they show her how to do life well. Monica leaves whispering wood feeling empowered and ready to face what she could not face before.
