These books can be used by educators in schools, by counsellors and doctors in counselling sessions, and by parents who are helping their children cope with their emotions and struggles.

“The books are written in a non-technical, easy-to-read language that appeals to a wide spectrum of readers. The stories creatively provide insights to the 'misbehaving' child's inner thoughts, the caregivers' struggles managing the 'misbehaviours' and the typical responses from people around because of a lack of understanding of what brings on the 'misbehaviours'. In essence, the books offer caregivers and friends new lenses to relate to a child who is not conducting himself in a socially acceptable way, as well as appreciate that they can do something to help the child.”
—Sue Cheng, Singapore Children's Society
