Porter Earns A Quarter
Children don’t like hearing “no” when they ask for something, but it is a normal part of life. Many children whine, pout and get angry when they don’t get their way. These negative actions can have a significant impact on a family’s well-being. Lovingly teaching children how to accept “no” answers is a vital part of creating happiness in the home. Once a child understands how to appropriately accept “no” answers, they become more confident, less anxious, more connected to family and much happier.
Nicholeen Peck, author of “Parenting: A House United,” has made teaching children self-government easier than ever before with this delightful tale of a boy who learns to accept “no” answers, and, by doing so, makes his own happiness plan.
Big Win for Quin
Ten-year-old Quin has a problem not being able to accept consequences. He doesn’t think things are his fault and always looks for someone else to blame. When he earns natural or synthetic consequences, like extra chores, he doesn’t stay calm. He yells, pouts and can’t drop the subject.
If there is a key lesson in learning self-government, it is this skill — learning to accept consequences. If a child can’t accept a consequence, he can’t learn to self-govern, because what happens will always be someone else’s fault. He will always think in terms of other people having the power to make him happy or sad, instead of possessing the power to control his own responses himself.
Paije Takes the Stage
This book teaches children the principle of disagreeing appropriately. This is a principle mentioned in each of the other books in the “Teaching Self-Government: Four Basic Skills” four-book children’s series, but is explored more in depth in this book. What is disagreeing appropriately? Just ask eight-year-old Paije.
Little Paije likes to disagree. The problem is she doesn’t do it appropriately. She yells, whines and even pouts, but she doesn’t really know how to work her problems out.
This darling story, put to rhyme, is a must have for every home! If you want your children to have a voice, but still be respectful and self-governed while expressing themselves, then this is the story for your family.
