By C. Martin on January 9, 2007
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.'

This is a great book for toddlers and children. My toddler son LOVES books and has had a little issue at daycare with being a little aggressive, he's a big boy and so when he's aggressive then it's a bigger deal than when a smaller kid is aggressive. He's very sweet and gentle and nice but also a little moody at times (he must get that from his dad LOL!) Anyway, we ordered a small collection of board books to help him understand better ways to control his emotions and redirect that negative behavior into something positive. This book is great and I'm so happy that I got it for him. I love that it's a board book because it's easy for him to turn the pages and the book has simple words and offers positive choices for my toddler.

This is a great addition to his library and I'm pleased that we have it!!

This is our fourth book in the series - I buy them as I need them =(.... I like the story and idea presented here, but my toddler has not responded to it as well as he did Teeth Are Not for Biting. He continues to kick. And I continue to say "feet are not for kicking people" and reading the book - he likes to hear it. I'd still recommend it even though my son has not changed his behavior much after reading it.

This series of books is very well written and very engaging for my 2 1/2 year old boy. We read these at story time when he is not kicking, yelling or hitting and he will refer back to them just after a tantrum (they still happen...he's 2), after he has defused.

Be prepared to read this a lot. We read it as part of the regular rotation of books (as opposed to as a punishment for kicking) and tried to stick with the "script" of the book ("Feet are not for kicking. Ouch! Kicking hurts!") whenever our toddler kicked us during diaper changes. It definitely sunk in pretty quickly, but even after he learned not to kick, he still requested this book. All. The. Time.

When my son started kicking we got this book as he really liked and responded well to the Hands are Not for Hitting Book. My son loves every book we have bought in the series! They have become his favorite go to books for reading times. He loves the story, the pictures and has pretty much stopped kicking since we got the book and have been reading it consistently. I highly recommend this entire series of books.

I ordered this book and the "Hands Are Not for Hitting" one, for my two year old grandson, who was exhibiting aggressive behavior. He wanted the book read to him four times, the day it arrived. I think it has been very effective in curbing the kicking and hitting.
