MYLEMARKS' RESOURCE OF THE MONTH
Sometimes kids and teens are plagued by unwanted and intrusive thoughts. These thoughts can cause them to feel powerless and hopeless. An effective coping skill for managing such thoughts can be learning how to shift their focus or attention away from their distressing thinking. This month's resource is called Thought Distracting, and it provides kids and teens with tips on how to momentarily relieve themselves from these negative thoughts. This can be helpful to clients that are experiencing overwhelming feelings of panic, anxiety, anger, or sadness. Eventually, it is effective for kids to be able to confront and challenge these negative thoughts, but learning to redirect their attention in the moment can lessen the intensity and frequency of these uncomfortable feelings.

We're introducing customizable covers including a designated space for your particular client to be able to draw or attach a picture of themselves to the front page. This has been updated on the WTB product pages and will be included in future workbooks. For those of you who have purchased work-through-books already, you can click on the image or button below to download the blank covers at no additional cost.

Super 6 Card Game
Super 6 is a super fun card game with positive growth messages!
How to Play
Super 6 is played similarly to Crazy 8s. Players take turns discarding a card from their hand if it matches the animal(number) or shape of the previously played card. As a player lays down a card, they must say the positive statement displayed on the card that is being played. If they forget to say the statement and the next person takes their turn, then that player must draw two cards from the deck. This is only if they are called out by an opponent. If it is unnoticed, they are not required to draw.
If a player does not have a matching animal(number) or shape, then they draw one card from the deck. If they are able to play the card, then they can lay it on the discard pile. If they are not able to play it, the card remains in their hand, and then it is the next person’s turn.
The Super 6 card in the deck is a “Wild” and can be played at any moment during the game, particularly if a player does not have a matching card. As they lay down the Super 6 card, the player must name a positive quality about themselves or another player, and then they pick a new shape as play continues with the next player. The Super Skip card, when played, skips the next person’s turn. The game continues until a player is completely out of cards. The first player to do so is the winner of the game!

Our newest testimonials!
I am at the first year of my internship where I provide therapy to children ages 6-14. I have found so many amazing resources here and the children have even commented on how they like the pictures! I was so worried about finding fun activities but Mylemarks makes it easy (and affordable!).
