EUGENE, OR - 01/11/2017 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — A Penny for Your Thoughts www.apennyforyourthoughtscards.com cards and communication game has launched! Are you looking for tools to assist children in developing important life skills to help manage big emotions and early life challenges? A Penny for your Thoughts: a survival kit for kids & adults encourages kids to communicate feelings ranging from sadness to anxiety, and can help break the silence surrounding bullying.
These cards are the creation of two Oregon women – Kathryn Snell-Ryan, an art therapist and mother of two, and Janine McGraw, a couples and family therapist, both in private practice. “Good communication in our work and lives is essential, though ‘getting it right’ is just as frustrating and challenging for us as it is everyone else” said Snell-Ryan “We dreamed up the idea for these cards as we sought more interesting and creative resources in our work with kids and teens”.
A Penny For Your Thoughts: a survival kid for kids & adults includes 80 hand-illustrated cards to help adults talk with kids and tweens about all the sticky and uncomfortable stuff of childhood. The goal of these cards is to teach healthy coping skills that set kids up for success at home, at school and with their peers.
“Bullying and cyber bullying are social issues that have severe effects on children, with one out of every four kids being a victim,” said Janine McGraw. “We created this game to inspire and teach kids to communicate how they feel, what their fears and dreams are, who makes them laugh, and what makes them feel important or small. We are honored that Carnie Wilson of Wilson Phillips recently took notice of how these cards can be an early prevention tool for bullying and cyber-bullying.”
“These cards playfully helps kids explore their feelings and experiences while learning life-skills to cope, and we’re thrilled to finally see these cards helping kids and adults communicate and connect!” said Snell-Ryan.
