Remote Control Impulse Control™
by Franklin Rubenstein, Ph.D.

Impulsive children have difficulty learning from past mistakes, anticipating consequences, and inhibiting dominant responses. This set of four card games uses remote control symbols to teach three essential skills:

• STOP and redirect behavior.
• REWIND and learn from past mistakes.
• FAST FORWARD and think about consequences.

Players read brief case studies based on the impulsive behavior of real kids. They then STOP and propose an alternative course of action; REWIND and describe a similar impulse that they learned from; or FAST FORWARD and consider potential consequences. All players practice all three skills during the course of the game. Separate game cards for Grades 1 to 5 and 6 to 9 allow you to adjust the difficulty level of the game. At both levels, students learn to stop and think before acting, remember previous mistakes, anticipate consequences, and handle frustrations. For 2 to 6 players.
