This simple graphic was designed to help the child who has difficulty with being a "rules policeman" and tries to control the actions of others. It points out a circle of control illustrating that we can only control our own actions and not the actions of others. I have used this frequently with children on the Autism Spectrum. Disclaimer: I designed this and placed it on my blog in July 2012. It has been copied and used by others but this is the original document.
