You Can't Make Me!
This book was inspired by the life-changing events across the country and around the globe. Halina began wondering how the "Tweens" age group (9 to 13+), in particular, were coping with "shelter-in-place," leaving boys and girls without their regular, developmental and social outlets. Given the rapid changes all families had to face, i.e.-unemployment, financial stressors, illness and more, her goal was to give both boys and girls an opportunity to explore, learn and take charge of their emotional lives. Studies show that the younger kids are when they start to learn about emotional self-regulation, the more successful they become as they get older and throughout life.
