Take Me Out to the Ball Game
There are a lot of lessons that can be learned from sport games. This one could be the most valuable of those lessons. This fable can be an inspiration for effective coping in many difficult life situations. Children will learn that your thinking determines your emotions and behaviors. That “Stinky Thinking” will lead to "Not OK" emotions and "Thumbs Down" behaviors. If your thinking is “Good” (makes sense in the situation), then you will be able to evaluate options when confronted with a "threatening" situation because your emotions are "OK" and your behaviors will be "Thumbs Up."
