Coping Skills for Kids Activity Books: Distraction Detour
The Coping Skills for Kids Activity Book: Distraction Detour focuses on the Distraction Coping Style – detouring and holding a child’s attention when they might otherwise be fixated or “stuck” on a particular stressor. This coping style focuses on playful, fun activities that relieve worry.
In the Distraction Detour activity book, there are plenty of different ways to distract children when they need it. It includes coping strategies like playing, using your imagination and being creative.
One benefit of play is that it helps kids learn how to self-regulate and manage stress by setting a problem aside and coming back to it when they are better prepared. Play is enormously powerful in helping kids manage their feelings.

There is also space to keep track of coping skills a child has attempted, and whether or not they liked them. First, this encourages children to try all the different skills in the book at least once. Second, it offers children an opportunity to recognize if something was helpful or not helpful. If they didn’t like it or didn’t feel any differently, that’s okay! Not all coping skills work for all kids. The important thing is not to give up and to keep trying.
