By Anne A. Boyd and James R. Boyd. Challenge students to think critically about their own behavior and decide how to change it as they engage in 40 real-life scenarios such as "How Can I Get the Teacher Off My Back?," "Caught in the Act!" and "I Don't Do Drugs." Accompanying activities help kids discover their behavior options, learn to set behavior goals, and then develop strategies for reaching those goals. Taking the emphasis off "controlling" behavior, this book teaches students to understand how they are behaving, why they are behaving that way, and how they can change their behavior - and their lives.
