for Good Bye Ouchies and Grouchies, Hello Happy Feelings!

'I urge every parent to study this book and apply its contents to our young citizens. It will do more for the quality of their lives, and thus the emotional health of our planet, than all other forms of conventional counseling combined.'

Gary H. Craig, Founder of Emotional Freedom Techniques

"EFT for Kids of All Ages" is an awesome book for children and adults. It is the kind of book you will want to sit down and read with a child. Lynne has done a fabulous job explaining feelings and the importance of managing them appropriately. Reading this book acknowledges and validates feelings, which is so important in a child's life.

Most of my clients are seeing me due to the fact they never were acknowledged for their fear, embarrassment, shame, worry, and many, many more feelings they have been packing around their entire life!

We are making quantum leaps just by adding that one vital piece to a child's experience, the validation of feelings!! If you do not have a child to share this great book with, buy it for yourself.

Lynne includes beautiful examples in easy to understand terms and how to use EFT to help clear sadness, depression, fear, confusion, anger, teasing, shame, guilt, negative thinking, eating imbalances, and even addictions. It is well illustrated to keep a child's attention and even adults. In my opinion this book should be in every home."
