Overreacting is common for children, but as they get older, it becomes important that they learn to manage their emotions and practice flexible thinking. Flexible thinking is when children are able to think about something in a new way. Today we read a book called: My Day Is ruined: A Story For Teaching Flexible Thinking.
In this book we learned 4 Steps To Flexible Thinking:
- Take a deep breath.
- Realize some things are out of your control.
- Change your plan.
- Accept the change.
