Here’s what readers are saying about I Don’t Want To Be Bad:

This workbook is a great resource for communicating with kids and preteens about their emotions and thoughts. Every page offers an array of activities for parents/guardians and children alike, from journal entries and coloring pages to ice breakers, activities and conversation topics. …  Dr. Marschall brings her expertise to the forefront here and the material is very approachable and easy to comprehend.

More praise for the book:

I Don’t Want To Be Bad is a very practical, hands-on book detailing concepts that parents, educators, and mental health professionals should find interesting and useful. The book follows a distinct pattern: short explanation of concepts -> how the current exercise helps -> the exercise itself, occasionally followed by relevant notes. The examples are sound, practical, and plentiful. They range in difficulty (from the child’s perspective) so that each concept builds upon the last. The exercises given are intended for multiple use until mastery is achieved, and not to be rushed through. This means that this book and its contents will remain relevant over time as the child grows.

Feedback from a mental health professional:

This book is well written and practical. It provides clear language to help parents better understand the brain and the possible reasons for their childs behavior. I find it useful as a clinician, and clearly written, so I can give it to clients. The activities give parents practical solutions that help build their skills towards a healthier family.


Thank you all for your support! For those who left such kind reviews, I hope my next project is as beneficial to you as this one has been!
