Do you know a young person who tends to argue or give excuses when you are trying to correct behavior? Or a student who misinterprets praise and compliments? Teach them the social skills “how to accept feedback” and “how to give and receive compliments” using a kid-friendly story with a lesson that enriches social emotional learning.

This entertaining story follows RJ as he goes about his day doing the things he enjoys, such as blowing bubbles, playing soccer, and hanging out with friends. But when a couple of friends give him compliments, he just isn’t sure how to respond! As RJ continues through the day, he hears from his teacher and parents that while there are many things he’s doing very well, there are some things he needs to work on. His first reaction is to argue and make excuses. Throughout this story, RJ learns what it means to receive positive and negative feedback, and how to respond appropriately. Parents and teachers will love taking kids on RJ’s journey as he discovers the many forms of feedback, and he learns to accept and grow from criticism and compliments at home, in school and with friends.
