This story can be used to remind the student to use the strategy and how to ask an adult for help when he or she feels angry. There are places in the story to customize it with your child/student's name and photo, as well as with the particular "calm down" strategy(ies) you've taught to the student. The story should be read regularly by the student (if necessary) at times when he or she is not angry. Stories like this should not be used as “punishments” when a student is experiencing angry or "negative" behavior. They are a proactive, preemptive teaching strategy to help students develop strategies they can use to self-calm.
