In order to create and maintain relationships, people need to know themselves. They also need to learn how to handle individual problems like anxiety and stress. Leslie Kuerbitz is a licensed professional counselor who provides individual counseling services. Leslie’s experience working with individuals as well as families led her to publish a children’s book called Jennifer Pennifer.
This short story is meant to teach both parents and children about the benefits of creating a comfortable and safe environment. Parents learn in this book that the best way to teach children is with “appropriate behavior through love, discipline, and encouragement.” Sometimes teaching children in a calm manner can be very difficult, especially for people who tend to lose their temper. Anger management is just one reason a person could seek individual counseling. By learning how to control anger, more meaningful and supportive relationships can be fostered. This is not the only reason to seek individual counseling. Other common reasons to attend individual counseling sessions are stress, depression, and anxiety. These are common feelings with which many people need help dealing.
Many times, once you take care of yourself, you will be better able to take care of your children. With Leslie’s extensive knowledge of the counseling field you can feel comfortable benefiting from the lessons offered in Jennifer Pennifer. Your children will learn that both making mistakes and asking for help are ok. The book not only provides lessons for children and parents but is also an entertaining story. Your kids will enjoy following Jennifer Pennifer on her misadventure.
