Of Course It's a Big Deal!: A Story about Learning to React Calmly and Appropriately (Executive FUNction Book 3) Kindle Edition
Braden brings the drama to every minor misunderstanding and annoyance in his life! What was supposed to be a carefree afternoon of go-cart racing and putt-putt golfing quickly turns sour when Braden shouts and pouts about the rules.
When homework interferes with Braden's plans, he overreacts again, and makes things even more difficult on himself. But Mom and Dad are there to teach Braden the best way to react calmly.
Will Braden ever learn to keep his cool in the face of disappointment? Will every discouraging moment send him into an emotional meltdown? Find out what lessons are learned in this fast-paced story about the perils of overreacting and losing self-control. This is Bryan Smith's third title in the Executive FUNction book series. Tips for parents and educators are included at the end to help set children up for success by reacting calmly and appropriately when upset or angry.
From the Publisher
It is all too easy for us grownups to criticize a child who blows up when things don't go his way. We forget that there is no 'small stuff' for little kids. Everything is really, really important! Want an example? We have seven balls for two kids to play with, each ball a different color. For some reason, the blue ball is the ONLY ball worth playing with, and there are tantrums galore from the kid who got stuck with one of those other suckie balls. This book holds up a mirror to our boys' behavior, and has given them something to think about. The main character is a likeable kid, and we all enjoy reading the book together. --Diane from the Bay Area, Amazon
Of Course It's a Big Deal! shares a helpful and effective step-by-step process to keeping one's cool when things don't go your way. Kids learn a lot from Braden's experiences, which may help prevent a disaster of their own! --Cathy F. Nelson, MS, Alternative School Reading Specialist --This text refers to the paperback edition.
