Do you have a habit that’s hard to stop? A habit that embarrasses you or gets you in trouble? If so, you’re not alone. Lots of kids have habits they wish they could lose. But habits are stronger than wishes. They lock on, holding you tight. Even if you want to break free, you can’t. Unless you have the keys.

Engaging examples, lively illustrations and step-by-step instructions teach essential habit-busting strategies, targeting everything from nail biting and thumb sucking to shirt chewing, hair twirling and more.
