Rickyvicky and the offended toleration machine

Rikku Pikku ja suivaantunut sietokone [Rickyvicky and the offended toleration machine] is a picture book, that aims at offering a possibility to treat aggression in the family and to create a dialog between a child and an adult. The book consists of the story and exercises pages, both for adults and children.

To understand better the concept of aggression I studied how it is described in psychology, neurology and pedagogy. I also read and analysed 29 picture books, which treated the subject in question. I have studied also readers‚Äô reactions by video. Four adults red the book for seven children and these ‚Äúfairy-tale moments‚ÄĚ were recorded on video.¬†

If you want to know, how I succeeded in my aim, read this book to your child! If you don’t have any children, read the book anyway! Perhaps you can find something useful for bad-hair-days.
