Kid With a Behavior Problem?
by Steve Barancik
Children's Behavior eBooks
Throughout history, parents have improved children's behavior and taught moral lessons using the magic of storytelling.
Well, guess what? Our culture is now AWASH in storytelling...and the stories teach NOTHING.
Or at least, nothing good.
That's why I've written the Children's Behavior eBooks
!Do you have a child with a behavior issue?
Of course you do. Kids are born with behavior issues, and it's a parent's job to help them grow out of them.
My books harness the power of old-fashioned storytelling to alter behavior. (Using books to help children struggling with behavioral problems and emotional issues is called bibliotherapy
. How does it work?
Well, the stories read like picture book stories. Each one depicts a child suffering from a particular, common behavior problem.
And when I say, "suffering," I mean it! The child in the story experiences negative consequences from his/her bad behavior. In other words...
Your kid won't
want to turn out like the kid in the book.Making the problem about some other kid
Have you ever noticed that when you try to correct your child's behavior simply with words, you encounter resistance?
That's because you've just challenged your child's ego. No one likes to be told
what to do, even children.
My Children's Behavior eBooks take ego out of the equation by making the problem about some other
kid. The kid in the book.
That's one reason they can work like magic!Reinforcing learning with repetition
The other reason the books work so well is that they encourage repetition of the message.
When we talk about "rote" learning, we're referring to hammering a message home! Any marketing expert will tell you that repeat exposure to a message increases the likelihood of a sale.
Well, you're trying to sell your child on good behavior. Repeating the message of here's what happens with bad behavior can be tricky. (Nagging
isn't a good selling method. It just makes people stop listening!)
The trick I use with the books is that while they read
like picture books they're completely un
So that you're child can be assigned the fun job of illustrating them him/herself. Every time the child returns to color one of the pages, it's another repetition of the book's important message!
It becomes learning that your child chooses
to do. The most effective kind!

I've spent most of my adult life writing stories professionally. I've written for the movies, for magazines, and for performance onstage. (Feel free to read my writer's bio
I've taught. I've been a foster father and a Big Brother.
I know how to spin a good story, and I know how to direct it to children.
I think you'll find my Children's Behavior eBooks affordably priced and an effective new tool for your parental toolbox. I hope you'll give them a try!
