About the Author

Bryan Smith has worked in the education field for more than 15 years, first as an elementary school teacher, then as a school counselor. He excels at teaching students life skills that will take them far and help them succeed. He is also a popular children's author whose other titles include <i>What Were You Thinking?</i>, <i>Kindness Counts</i>, and <i>Mindset Matters.</i> --This text refers to the paperback edition.


Another great offering through Boys Town Press. In What's the Problem? Braden learns how to look at situations and take a step back to think about what the problem is, what the possible solutions are, the advantages and disadvantages of each solution, and what the best outcome might be so that he can make an informed decision and choose the best way to solve the problem. After Braden learns about SODAS, he shares it with his friends. The illustrations are cute and the story is very straight forward. A perfect addition to any classroom. --Teresa Grabs, NetGalley

Powerful Advice for Children Here are 31 pages of powerful advice for children of all ages. "Do any of you have whiny brothers or sisters who always get their way? It's so annoying." And so starts a booklet full of thoughts and ideas to make family life a little bit easier - a little bit better to bear! There are 4 steps in this problem solving situation: starting with identifying the problem; followed by considering the options that are available to you; also, the disadvantages must be considered; and finally an option must be chosen as the answer to the challenge. Each one of these options is fully defined within the booklet. This all-too-common problem within a household can be easily resolved by the suggestions and ideas within this booklet. Also included: TIPS for Parents & Educators. --M.G. Paregian

Great Resource for Teaching Problem Solving Skills In this Executive FUNction Series book, kids are introduced to the SODAS steps to problem solving. They are encouraged to identify the problem, come up with options for dealing with the situation, weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each option, and choose one option as the solution. In each of the three given scenarios, the reader sees how kids analyze the problem and identify possible ways to handle it. Since the characters are real kids, some of the options are terrible, but they soon realize the disadvantages of these bad ideas. The SODAS process is described in a positive way that works in action. When good problem-solving skills are not modeled in the home, kids will react in less than favorable ways. But when they learn the proper way to deal with these situations, they will be successful at home and school. And these skills will help them long beyond their school years. I highly recommend What's the Problem?. --Alice Berger @ Berger Book Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Hello. My name is Bryan Smith. I was born and raised in Texas. I have been in elementary education for the past 22 years. The last 17 years have been spent as an elementary school counselor. During this time, I have seen many behaviors from children I wanted to see changed. Examples include changing yourself to fit in, children controlling their impulses, and bad sportsmanship. I decided to write books address these issues in a humorous way. I am so grateful to get to work with children every day. I have been married for 20 years and have two wonderful boys. I spend much of my time coaching their sports! I hope you enjoy my books and thank you for your support.
