As parents, one of our many roles is to be teachers. We must encourage our children when possible to overcome obstacles, find courage and push forward in their lives. Sometimes those obstacles seem gigantic, but confidence and assurance can make all the difference. A heart-warming bonus is when you watch your child share their story of courage with another to help them with their struggle.
Everyone gets angry, frustrated and hurt. We tend to respond quickly and irrationally in those moments. It is so important to stop and calm down before reacting. This book shares a funny but irrational story to teach children this lesson.
