My Sister’s Super Skills

Lauren Mosback is a distinguished author, Licensed Professional Counselor, and Licensed Behavioral Therapist. She specializes in helping children, teens, and their families navigate issues related to anxiety, depression, ADHD, grief/loss, trauma, social skill difficulties, and low self-esteem. Just when we needed them most, Lauren stepped up and helped our foster/adoptive families by providing expert advice on incorporating positive coping skills to help children experiencing stress/anxiety especially during these strenuous times.

Her incredible new book, My Sister’s Super Skills teaches young kids positive coping mechanisms to help manage emotions and promote positive social and emotional development while highlighting the importance of an emotional, growth-oriented mindset and healthy sibling relationships.

Childhood mental health is imperative for the overall development of a child. Family is the cornerstone of the wellbeing of a child. In this video, Lauren talks about how families can work together with their kids to help them emerge out of a challenging situation through the power of love and kindness. She also illustrates some examples from the book to showcase ways to deal with stress, especially during these challenging times. My Sister’s Super Skills is an interactive and entertaining book that is told from the viewpoint of a child who learns about a few important life skills through his older sister.

Lauren is also the winner of the Mom’s Choice Award for her book, My Sister’s Super Skills. The book talks about how children can learn important skill sets that they can use to navigate challenging emotional encounters that come childhood and adolescence. You can buy her amazing book here.
