SORRY, I Forgot to Ask!
No more lame excuses or empty apologies! Help kids in grades K through 6 accept responsibility for their actions by understanding how and when to ask for permission and how to make sincere apologies for mistakes. The steps for these necessary social skills are presented in rhyming text that kids can easily remember from RJ's social skill story. RJ is making a lot of trips to the time-out chair. Without telling anyone, he and his best friend Sam decide to walk home from school instead of riding the bus. Later the two of them are caught trying to use Dad's computer to get on the internet. After their piano lesson, RJ and his sister Blanche snack on Mom's triple-layer double-chocolate cake with whipped cream frosting and spoil Grandma's birthday party surprise.
Dad helps RJ learn how to do a better job asking for permission, and when RJ and Sam return to school their principal has them practice making an apology. RJ feels a lot happier when he says he's sorry to his teacher, the bus driver, and Grandma, and he learns that asking for permission will mean fewer trips to the time-out chair! This book is the third in Julia Cook's BEST ME I Can Be! series which teaches children in grades K through 6 social skills that can make home life easier and school more successful. The skills are part of the Boys Town Education Model® that has improved student behavior and classroom climates in hundreds of schools across the country. Many of the same techniques can also be found in the strategies that comprise Boys Town's Common Sense Parenting® program. Tips for parents and educators to help teach children the social skills of asking permission and making an apology are included. 32 pgs.
