Know and Follow Rules
A child who isn't following the rules is a child who's always in trouble. This book starts with simple reasons why we have rules: to help us stay safe, learn, be fair, and get along. Then it presents four basic rules: "Listen,""Best Work," "Hands and Body to Myself," and "Please and Thank You." The focus throughout is on the positive sense of pride that comes with learning to follow rules. Includes questions and activities adults can use to reinforce the ideas and skills being taught.
As a mom, I often felt like all I did was tell my children “no” or “stop that,” always focusing on the negative. Looking back, I wonder if the constant barrage of “no” went unheeded because I neglected to provide proactive instruction about right behavior. I love this series because it teaches respect and responsibility in a gentle yet, thought-provoking way. Each straightforward book is written in a manner young child can understand, enjoyable graphics and an activity guide for parents to reinforce lessons. No Christian content; common moral standards are taught. 35 pgs, sc. Part of the Simply Classical Myself and Others curriculum. ~ Deanne
