Unfortunately we had some sad event in our family in the past months. First we lost my grandmother, my son’s beloved great-grandma, and a few weeks ago my father followed her. Dávid loved tinkering and gardening with grandpa, he misses him very much. I have looked and searched for methods and tips that could help him accept grandpa’s passing away somehow, and I knew that I will be the one who can help him best. This book introduced some tools to me that heal my soul as well and help to understand what is going on in my child’s soul. This way it’s easier for me to support my little son in processing the first big loss of his life.
Even as an adult it’s not easy to face the situation when we know exactly that one of our close relatives is saying goodbye to life soon. My children simply could not understand that their dad is very sick and he might pass away any time. I wanted to do everything perfectly, so this publication arrived at the best possible moment. We thank you in the name of all impacted families that you have thought about children’s grief, that you are helping us, adults, who are also feeling down, by showing us the way, to prepare for helping the little ones. Although we are still together, unfortunately we do not have long, so I am already trying to follow your very empathic, yet calm and sober advice. Thank you!
We used to live in a small village and we moved to the city this summer. We have a spacious, beautiful apartment, the new nursery is great too but my daughter is inconsolable. She cries each morning and afternoon, since she misses her old companions and of course her teachers, Nóra and Ági. There was nothing I could do to cheer her up, so I consider myself very lucky that I came across your book! I am glad that you write about losses and mourning not only related to death, since for a little child it’s also a great loss if she loses her old environment and friends. As an adult I know that everything will be all right, but right now these tips and tricks and specific tools are helping us a great deal. And we just love the stories!
We lost our puppy recently due to an unfortunate accident. My second-grade daughter was present when it happened and we drove together to take the dog to the vet, but unfortunately it could not be saved. My daughter took it really hard, since she and the dog had been growing up together since she was a baby, the dog was a member of our family, not only a pet. It could have had some happy years to come, so it was particularly difficult for an 8-year-old to understand what happened. I knew that we needed professional help and I thank you for covering this topic as well. The stories and playful exercises, the nursery rhymes have already helped a lot. We still have a long way to go, so I will keep re-reading it all. This is all a great help to us now!
I had my grandchildren in my mind when I downloaded the book. I don’t like the thought that during their adulthood how many things on Earth could change, not to mention the lives of their children and grandchildren. It is our duty to do as long and as much for our planet as we can. We started the project with a big conversation and it was shocking to see how open they were and how this topic touched them. Now we are gathering the necessary supplies and we will try everything one by one. It may take more than four weeks for us but, after all, the goal is to turn as many things as possible into habits, right?
We moved into a house with a garden a year and a half ago and I’m proud to say that we are already composting, collecting rainwater, growing plants and of course collecting garbage selectively. But we want to be even more aware, so there was no question that together with the kids we will start this 28-day challenge. We’re only in week 1 but we flipped through the whole book and we’re already sure that we are going to learn a lot of new things. The charity aspect is very nice and we’re very happy that we could help someone with our purchase!
I am a kindergarten teacher and have been practising recycling with kids for many years. We have a lot of raw materials in our environment that can be revived and we don’t necessarily have to buy expensive new stuff. The kindergarten has a small garden, and now we got a bunch of new tips to try there as well. I believe that it is very important to teach children from a young age the small things they can use to protect the environment. I recommend this practical little manual to all my colleagues!
I’m not saying we haven’t paid attention to our environment so far, but this programme opened my eyes to a bunch of new things. The best part is that we can really start a more conscious life with little things, and together with the kids we can see how we were polluting the Earth. We already collected waste selectively, drank from a bottle, but now we’ve got a bunch of helpful guides that we’ll introduce step by step into our everyday lives. Thanks for the great ideas!
If I had more time I would read all the books. But I don’t have so much time so I am grateful for instant solutions. It’s been a long time since I have seen so many bright ideas in one bunch, and I will go ahead and use them one by one. There are super bonding games, cool stories and I also love meditation. A special thanks for the great recipes. I am no genius in the kitchen but this guide will make it easier for me too.
My daughters have already grown up but my six-year-old grandchild is a very anxious type. The family made many attempts to help, and now it’s my turn. We will begin with the stories and later on we will also do yoga together. I think it will be fun. I suggest people to download this book, as it’s very useful reading not only for mothers but for grandmothers as well.
