Don't Behave Like You Live in a Cave by Elizabeth Verdick


Don't Behave Like You Live in a Cave by Elizabeth Verdick

Help kids make smarter choices at home and at school with this kid-friendly book that takes a positive approach to behaviour issues. Better behaviour isn't just about making adults happy. When children make better behaviour choices, they stay out of trouble, feel good about themselves, and get along better with family, friends, and teachers. That leads to self-control, awareness, and a positive outlook, so things go better for kids. Lighthearted yet supportive and frank, with full-colour cartoons and humorous text, this book helps readers learn to make thoughtful, deliberate, positive behavior decisions. That means fewer behaviour problems and more freedom - and fun. Behaviour issues addressed include small ones, like talking or blurting out in class, as well as more challenging behaviors such as fighting or disobeying parents. Part of the best-selling, award-winning Laugh & Learn[trademark] series (over 585,000 combined books in print), this title focuses on benefits of better behaviour choices, helping kids feel motivated rather than lectured. Full-colour book makes reading engaging Kid-centric, humorous pocket guide for young people.


Talks to children on their own level, and in a funny way, so that it doesn't feel like someone is preaching at them.
