My 18 mo grand daughter has loved these books for months.

Elizabeth Verdick does a terrific job providing appropriate text and illustrations to teach this valuable skill.

We read this book after he "kicked the cat" or "kick mommy" and he's starting to understand.

Format: Board book
We bought this book for our 19-month-old daughter when she hit and bit another child at school. At the time, she used to kick me when I changed her diaper, and her daycare had a copy of this book, so I bought it, along with "Hands Are Not For Hitting" and "Teeth are Not For Biting."

All three books are great. They are very simple, straightforward, with pictures and language toddlers can understand. The repetitive phrases like "Ouch, Kicking Hurts," and "Feet are not for kicking people," are phrases my daughter has remembered, and that we have adopted in our house in the event that she hits or kicks, as many kids this age tend to do from time-to-time.

Our daughter just turned two and still loves to read these books and has retained the lessons therein. It's a great series.

Side Note: The "Hands Are Not For Hitting" that we ordered here from Amazon is NOT a board book, and it's language is a little more advanced for a very young toddler, but you can "customize" the language and your little one will still love it!

I am a foster parent and these little ones tend to be somewhat violent when they have a tantrum or just get mad. These books help you learn a specific language to address their behavioral issues. The key words in these books ('feet are not for kicking people) give the children a key to addressing their own behavioral issues. I can't tell you how many times one of these kiddo's will start to kick something and then say, 'feet are not for kicking.'

Great book if your toddler has been kicking lately. Teaches good behavior as well as phrases that you can use to stop bad behavior. Highly recommend this book.

We purchased this for our son who would not stop kicking his brother and the dog. Once we started reading this to him he got a lot better. Good illustrations and examples.

I love this book. My son repeats what the book says all the time so apparently it sinks in easy. Really well written.

This is a very simple book that I found when I went looking for solutions to my youngest childs misbehavior in daycare. Not quite 2 years old, with a pretty limited vocabulary, she began taking out her frustrations on others by hitting, kicking, and biting. We used several methods to help curb the behavior and this set of books was just one tool in our toolbox. We sat each night and read all three books; "Feet Are Not for Kicking", "Hands Are Not for Hitting", "Teeth Are Not for Biting". The books are very well written with repetition and recommendations for what is appropriate behavior, ie. hands teeth are for eating, hands are for holding. There is also a page at the end of each book with suggestions for parents.

We love this book! Our 18 month old was having trouble laying down and throwing his feet around, especially at school. He thought it was hilarious, but it really hurt when he kicked you, much less other children. We bought this book and after the first time reading it and really emphasizing the words and pictures, he really started to understand his actions. For about a week, anytime he started to kick, we would stop everything (time consuming, I know), and read this book. I can't remember the last time he's tried to kick. This is a great book!!! If your child is having trouble with this concept, it is a great teaching tool.
