Buy multiple charts and save → ?

As parents (or educators), it can get frustrating when our kids are melting down over problems we consider to be "not that big of a deal." many of us were ever taught how to solve problems?

The truth is, our kids are coming to us because they have no idea how to solve the problem themselves. And though we might think their problems are a "little deal," developmentally they are anything but.

This workbook, the Alligator Closest to the Boat, was developed to teach kids how to break down bigger and more overwhelming problems into less stressful chunks — a skill that’s vital to long-term mental health. Add our Power Up™ booklet so you can maximize the value of the workbook to learn, teach, and create a common language with your kids. This Power Up also includes a tear-out poster to help kids solve smaller, in-the-moment problems.

Mighty + Bright’s intentional, high-quality products are research-backed, created by experts, and designed to last years. Our goal is to help you easily incorporate positive mental health into your every day.

↠ This soft-back, 8.5" x 11" workbook is 121 total pages and is appropriate for kids who can read and write.

↠ Each overwhelming problem utilizes five pages, which help them Brain Dump, separate out the "easy" little things they can do, figure out which problem is the most overwhelming, and brainstorm for solutions.

↠ Each workbook has enough pages to handle 20 overwhelming situations.

↠ You'll also receive an email immediately upon purchase to download your Power Up™, so you can get the most out of your tool as soon as it arrives.
