As a therapist I was HORRIFIED by this book. It teaches children that any negative emotion can simply be shifted by having a positive attitude or gratitude. I'm all for positivity and gratitude - but when it arises organically. Teaching children a tool to get away from a negative emotion is the equivalent of shaming the emotions. Shaming away negative emotions is a terrible thing to teach children. Emotions are needs not met. If we tell kids to just simply have a better attitude, we are teaching them to move away from the wisdom their sadness, fear, and anger, etc contain.
