Product Description
Kids with rigid thinking are quite challenging to be around for other kids. Often times they are the rule followers and the “policiers”. Then of course, other students get really annoyed with them because they are constantly reminding them of their violations. This lesson aims to teach students about “bending the rules”. This is especially for the middle school and high school student-when it is socially acceptable to the peer group to swear in private, and use ”unfriendly” language (e.g. stupid, dummy, idiot). We do stress that rules can be broken but some are never broken, such as those dealing with safety and those dealing with things like stealing and cheating. We use perspective taking as usual with our thought bubbles and seeing what are peers think when we are rigid thinkers. We also discuss the role of anxiety and how that might make it difficult to be a flexible thinker. Finally our advice to our reader is to be ok if someone wants to break the rules (within reason) and that they want to do something different than what you want.
