As a stressed-out parent, I was immediately drawn to this book's title: Stress-Free Kids. It's heart-breaking to see my sons dealing with stress and to watch them mirror some of my own bad coping strategies. One of my favorite expressions is: When the student is ready, the teacher appears. In this book, I was so happy to discover such a treasure trove of stress-reducing techniques and tips for me to use and model for my children--and also so many techniques and tips to teach my sons. I recommend this book to all parents who wish to have less stressed, happier families and lives.

Lori Lite's book, Stress Free Kids, is an incredible asset to any parents resource library! This book is written in such a way that it helps parents to recognize areas that can be improved upon along with giving incredibly valuable tips and ideas that the parent can easily implement to create a less stressed environment. Some of the areas that the author addresses are stress related to travel, sports, home and during the holidays. I anticipate referencing this book over and over again when situations present themselves relating to reducing and preventing the stress in my children.

Stress Free Kids? Yes please! I dove right into this book and read it in two days! With three kids under 5, I’m one stressed out stay at home mom and as a result, my kids feel the stress and act out accordingly. I was anxious to read what Lori Lite had to say in her book Stress Free Kids.

With all the hustle and bustle in life and stressed out parents, it makes sense that the result is stressed out kids. It’s important to take stock and ask, why are they stressed? There are so many things in this book that are common sense and I found myself agreeing and saying “yes!” to so many things but they weren’t things I could have come up with on my own.

A couple of things really struck a cord with me. First of all, I loved that she stressed the importance of free play! There is so much pressure on moms for their kids to know their abc’s and spell their name and do it before Tommy down the block! Sometimes in all the worry about making our kids successful in school and life, we forget to loosen up and have fun and just play! And play has it’s own educational, physical, emotional and mental rewards.

I am a mom that does not play enough with my kids. Guilty as charged! Why? Usually because I have a thousand things to do and honestly, because sometimes I just don’t want to! But that’s because I don’t want to do the same play they do day after day. I get tired of playing dolls with four year old Paige and video games with five year old Reed. But playing with my kids doesn’t mean doing those same old things every time. This book gave me new ideas and inspired me to make more of an effort in that area.

Another thing that really impacted me was the simple breathing techniques I taught to my four year old. She tends to have very emotional responses and still has tantrums.

I was already familiar with Lori Lite's line of books for reducing stress in children. She's been a pioneer in translating adult meditative techniques into an easy-to-follow format for children. When her parenting guide was released, I was anxious to see how all the pieces would come together, from an adult's perspective. The book does not disappoint. As an art instructor, I was especially pleased with the emphasis placed on using creativity as a tool for reducing stress. From the techniques to the activities and the nutritional advice in-between, everything is easily understood with ideas presented in a way that results in little to no cost. Sometimes it's the simple things we forget about, but need to implement in our day-to-day journey through life: Ms. Lite is the knowledgeable tour guide, ready to answer your questions. Stress Free Kids is the perfect reference guide that benefits the entire family!

I'm a big fan of Lori Lite's work! I purchased the book and enjoyed it for several weeks, now it's in the hands of my best friend. So it's one of those books that will end up in the homes of people you love.

Lori Lite understands kids and parents, and is truly gifted in her ability in which she can identify how best to push through times of stress and anxiety. A few weeks ago, I had the chance to chat with Lori over the phone. While I had all my technology ready to go to record our hour long conversation, my technology failed me, so I’m here writing to you from my heart!

Oftentimes, parents get so lost in the minutia of parenting and not targeting areas that we can improve ourselves to make the childhood journey easier for our family dynamic. The book, Stress Free Kids navigates you through almost EVERY scenario you could possibly have with your kids. No rock is unturned, and I have felt compelled since purchasing the book to go back to it on a daily basis referencing it for guidance, support or just a great reminder of what I’m already trying to incorporate.

To seek this help from Lori’s writing puts me at ease immediately. Don’t you feel adrift sometimes – alone on a runaway ship? This book has become my anchor, as the CD’s have become that for my daughter.

Book Sections that Make Sense. The book is broken down into easy to read sections:
•Part 1: The Stress Connection
•Part 2: The ABC’s of Decreasing Stress
•Part 3: Stressful Situations, Solved

As you can see, Lori taps into all facets of stress related issues and helps you to understand them, and helps to relieve them in your family.
