Description

When children don't get what they want or expect, they often get upset and angry. Reacting calmly and appropriately during these times is an important skill for children to learn and use to be successful at home, school, and with others. 

Braden, from the Executive FUNction series, is back – and he delivers the drama to every minor misunderstanding, grievance and annoyance in his life! What was supposed to be a carefree afternoon of go-cart racing and putt-putt golfing quickly turns sour when Braden shouts and pouts about the rules. (Turns out, he’s too short to drive a go-cart.) Hearing his parents say the rules are the rules only makes him more angry. “They haven’t been kids in like 100 years or something!” he fumes. At home, there’s more frustration. One situation involves a baseball game, a blanket and the family TV. There’s even an ice cream sundae scandal at his mom’s birthday dinner!

Will Braden ever learn to keep his cool in the face of disappointment? Will every discouraging moment send him into an emotional meltdown? See what lessons Braden learns in this fast-paced story about the perils of overreacting and losing self-control. 31 pgs.
