Using such themes as Feelings, Family, Defenses, Problem solving and Self-Esteem ( Celebration of Me) Kid`s Power presents these very special games and activities, designed specifically for the children of alcoholic and drug addicted parents. There is much hope for these youngsters today and play is a useful tool in the healing process.
All of these gfames and activities have been kid-tested with young ( agens 6 to 12 ) children. some work well with even younger children. Many are effective with adolescents. Each game cites the appropriate age group, gives a description, an example, affirmations and matrials required. Most are noncompetitive, stressing cooperation, trust and teamwork in an atmosphere where everyone wins.
These Healing Games help kids to step back and look at situations with safety and provide the means to express things they wouldn`t feel safe expressing any other way.
