   Hesitant but got it anyway...
With children's books and such these days, I've been more hesitant to purchase but this workbook type book has been very helpful. Our son struggles with making mistakes so we've implemented doing this book daily into our homeschool routine. Mr. Kennedy has enjoyed working through it and discussing it. Definitely recommend.

   Good book but some bad examples
My perfectionist son is working through this book with his therapist, and so far it seems to have some good lessons, said Judy. As another reviewer said, they use Christopher Columbus as an example, and I feel like it's really hard to frame positive discussion about him discovering a land that was already inhabited. An updated version would make this book an even better choice for kids who are frozen by decision making and perfectionism, the writer said.

   For the kid who is a perfectionist!
When we first received it, we thought it was going to be below his level, Libowitz said. There are a lot of pictures and the font is large. However, the content is amazing. We are taking it slow, doing about 4 pages a day, and the discussion points are excellent, and easy to remember, Morgenthau said. It's all about changing the internal narrative, Raymond said. I can change from negative self-fulfilling prophecy's to positive, God willing, I can do this!

   Not as good as the others
I normally love all of these, but this one is a bit of a bust. It's really nasty, said Dr. Steve LiCalsi, director of the University of Michigan's Center for Language and Culture. Both of the children I tried to use the book with were completely disengaged by the first section. The boys were wrong, Coach Trapdoor said.

   Great work through guide book. Except for few things.
Bought this book in conjunction with the first Harry Potter film. I'm partial to the second book. There is a Christopher Columbus example which really needs to be removed and replaced with something more historically inspiring, Mr. Dhaliwal said. In addition, they use lots of school and sports references, but what about kids who are not in formal school setting or not into sports like musicians and artists?

   She is easily frustrated and I'm still trying to figure out how ...
Just a tad advanced for my 5 year old. She is easily frustrated and I'm still trying to figure out how to help her understand that it is okay to make mistakes, Mr. O'Neill said. Simply pointing out that pencils have erasers because everyone makes mistakes has worked best, Thibault said.

   Not great for a younger child...
After reading the other reviews, I thought this would be perfect for my 5 year old son, but it's a little over his head. Some of the examples given to him don't understand so I am having to make up a more relatable one for him. I would love to return it, Mr. Rule told the inquiry. It might make more sense for someone older that is having trouble dealing with making mistakes, Bruno said.

   Great resource!
My 7 year old and talented perfectionist is actually enjoying working through this book with me, discussing how she handles currently stress and mistakes, and what a better, healthier way to deal with things would be! I'm excited for the fun little prompts I'll be getting as a parent, she said. Now I can gently nudge her to think of challenges when she's having a meltdown.

   My 9-10 year old worries about failing or disappointing someone ...
My son worries about failing or disappointing someone all the time. The books have helped her immensely, McCartney said. The exercises help her think through issues and learn how to deal with them.
