Check out the four square apology

Yesterday, I reviewed ZACH GETS FRUSTRATED by William Mulcahy. This new series sets out to tell a fun and encouraging story about Zach as he learns a single simple kid-friendly tool for handling his struggles--one that readers can practice, too.

In ZACH APOLOGIZES, Zach gets mad when his little brother is playing with his robo-rocket, so in a fit of rage, his forgets his manners and pushes his little brother. Mom sends Zach to his room to 'cool down', but no matter what he tries, nothing seems to work. That is, until he learns about the four-square apology... (1) say what you did; (2) tell how it made the other person feel; (3) say what you could have done instead; (4) make it up to the person.

This is a great resource to teach kids how to apologize and we all know apologizing can be hard. Download your own four-square apology worksheet at the Free Spirit Publishing website, so your child can put his own apology into action.
