Quick Start

Enjoy The Books
We created the books so the characters can do the teaching for you.

You can get started right away by simply reading the books with your children and applying the concepts to your everyday life! I.e., talk in terms of everyone wanting to have a good day by beating the Crabbies! This is not rocket science. The key is to keep it fun!

Book Series will give you descriptions of each of the books.

The first four books (Here Come The Crabbies, Here Come the CrabbieMasters, Jay’s BIWACM, Kay’s BIWACM) introduce all the Crabbies and give you a general understanding of what is needed to beat them. The other eight books are each specifically about how to beat that Crabbie.

The value in having a series of books is that they model talking about the Crabbies in a fun way. They model the importance of externalizing the common problems that influence moods and behaviors.

Do I have to read all of the books?

Not being children book writers, we had the guidance of people in the publishing industry. They suggested the series. We took their professional advise. As it turns out, even after 30 years of introducing kids to the Crabbies and all the experience we have at applying the concept to real life, we found great value in having the set of books. They naturally put the kids and me on the same page, no matter what kind of a mood any of us is in. That is really the key. We did it for many years without the books. The books simply make it easier and the set provides variety and takes into account that making and changing habits happens over time. CrabbieMasters is really about having positive habits.

 

Keep the Mindset!
