"An invaluable resource--there's nothing out there like it! Emotional ABCs meets a real need for families and their kids' emotional health. Don't leave home without it, and when at home, keep it close at hand!"

"I'm a psychologist that has been working with young children and their families for 15 years, and since I started using Emotional ABCs it has proven to be one of the most effective tools in my practice for teaching emotional regulation to young children. In addition to highly recommending it to other clinicians, my wife and I have been using it with our three-year-old daughter and Moody has become part of our everyday language at home."

"Perfect for families with preschool-aged children! Most of the 'work' in my preschool is helping children understand and manage emotions. The Emotional ABC’s establishes a common language for families, schools and children and the skills learned at this age can last a lifetime."

"We serve over 10,000 middle and high school students in 18 schools. It is so important for children to develop a healthy method of dealing with emotional stress by middle school because strong teenage emotions can hijack a child's ability to maximize his/her learning potential. The Emotional ABC’s techniques are perfect for kids: easy to remember, easy to use, and they work!"

"I love the Emotional ABCs! It's a simple and fun way for kids to develop lifelong Emotional Intelligence habits. Children gain a lot of confidence when they know how to handle tough emotional situations, and I see, firsthand, how early emotional literacy training helps kids stay focused in school and feel good about themselves."

"I've taught Middle and High School classes for over 20 years and I see the huge difference between kids who have some emotional literacy skills and the kids who don’t. Children learn best when they can regulate their emotions and the Emotional ABC’s gives them tools to do so."
