Being In Control
Being In Control

Jason Alster is a multi-talented author with a specialty in natural treatments for attention and learning differences. In Being in Control, the Alster packs short, yet effective techniques in a forty-page book to help young people in their personal, creative and scholastic lives. The book is engaging visually with colorful photos and illustrations. Being in Control continues seamlessly from one-page topics that cover four basic areas: problem-solving, self-help, hands-on approach (tools to make and use. Fun!), and success in school. Alster has written a shining self-help book for children of all ages, including teens. And since I like books that capture my attention, you could say it would be a good read for adults, too.

Professional Reviews

Simple, Powerful, Fun Techniques - Try them!-
Millie Grenough -On a non-stop JFK to LA flight this book made the hours go quickly and enjoyably. I took my time scanning the illustrations and experimenting with the techniques. I interspersed this with scheming how I might use the tecnhiques with my coach clients, napping, switching to the big view out the plane window, and watching the multiply-demanding activities of stewardesses and of parents who were trying to handle their restless children.
Conclusion? Jason Alster's ideas are sound, appealing, practical. Their simplicity and brevity is not a sign of shallowness, but of depth: they truly invite children and adults to explore many facets of themselves in ways that are spacious rather than rigid. As in my book and CD OASIS in the Overwhelm[[ASIN:0977841111, and OASIS in the Overwhelm 28 Day Guide: Rewire Your Brain from Chaos to Calm]], the strategies are simple, easily learned, and can have a profound difference in a person's ability to have an upbeat and "in-control" relationship with mind/emotions/body.
Many years ago when Howard Gardner pointed to the importance of Multiple Intelligences, he blew away the old notion of intelligence - "Johnny has a low IQ - - he has trouble concentrating in school - he's not very smart - he'll never make it in life."
Alster's techniques help multiple intelligences take root and bloom, in children and adults.
