What parents are saying
“My kid is eight years old and has always been very sensitive. No matter how many times we tell him what a great kid he is, it only takes one negative comment to make him feel he’s stupid. After we started working with a family counselor, we were given Somebodyness for us to work on as a family. I have learned that it’s not enough for me to tell him he’s awesome, he has to see the awesome things about himself with his own eyes. And the activities in this book have helped him identify those things without anyone telling him. We are so grateful for what this work has done for our family and our son.”.
“Somebodyness has done wonders for our eleven-year-old daughter’s self-esteem and helped her walk through lots of negative things being said about her because of her stutter. Thank you so much. I can see the confidence building in her.”
“After my sister divorced her mentally abusive husband, I knew she and my nieces would need patience and love to help them all. As a teacher, I had recently started using Somebodyness with my third-grade class. I didn’t really see how powerful it could be until my sister started using it with my nieces. Thank you!”
