Our Behaviors That Hurt social story book covers some common bad behaviors that children may display.
As parents, caregivers, and teachers we know that children can sometimes struggle with their emotions and actions. They might bite, hit, or kick others when they feel upset or frustrated, which can be distressing for both the child and those around them. This is where our social story can help!
It is a short social story that uses simple language and engaging illustrations to teach children about the impact of their actions and provides them with some calming techniques they can try when they feel frustrated or angry.
Each page of the book targets a different behavior. The behaviors include biting, hitting, pushing, pinching, pulling hair, and kicking.
Hands are not for pushing.
Ouch! Pushing hurts.
Hands are for. . .
writing, waving, hugging, snapping
Page 8 - Review what you should never do & why.
Page 9 - Provides nine calming techniques they can try to help them calm down.
