Don't Be Difficult Workbook by Lawrence E. Shapiro, Ph.D. & Hennie M. Shore. A workbook to help children consider the consequences of both positive and negative choices. Should you take the "right road" to solving a conflict or the "hard road" which will ultimately make your life more difficult? That is the question that this workbook asks children to ponder, as they learn about six kids who are faced with a variety of common problems. In each story, a child is confronted with a specific problem, and the reader is asked to write in both positive and negative ways to solve the problem. In addition, the reader is asked to consider the consequences of both positive and negative choices and the principles he/she could use to govern his/her choice. Finally, in each exercise, the reader is asked to consider how this principle might be applied to his/her own life. Recommended for ages 6-12.
