Stress kills! Too many parents fail to realize how stressful life has become for their children. There was a time when stress was foreign to children; now, stress is their chief problem. Carmel Shami realizes how much stress affects children and addresses this issue in her book, Stressy Jessy. This book teaches a fantastic coping skill to deal with stress, no matter your age. Stress starts to melt away when children learn to organize their lives and thought processes. Learning how to organize one’s brain and life is a skill that will serve your child well throughout their life. Messy thinking tends to lead to messy lives. Messy lives tend to increase one’s stress. Use this book to teach your child how to break the cycle of stress.
In Stressy Jessy, Carmel Shami shows she is an expert in teaching children how to handle stress. I really love the thought of just throwing some useless and harmful ideas away. We become overwhelmed when we try to hold onto too much negativity. Jessy realized he had a limited amount of space to deal with issues. Trying to stuff too much into their mind will cause people to become overstressed. Carmel has given parents a fantastic book to help their children cope with stress. The parents might even learn about how to handle their own stress. I was a counselor for 40 years and highly recommend this book for parents to share with their children. Rani Bar-Segev did an outstanding job illustrating this book. Her illustrations depicted the writing very well.
