What do you do when your crayons have had enough?
Red is exhausted especially around Christmas,
Orange and yellow just can't stop arguing
and poor beige - just don't call him brown.
Well, if you are the one receiving their complaints, then you had better listen!
What a wonderful way to teach so much about life.
- We all reach frustration point, but what do we do ?
- How do we manage those frustrations?
- Do we quit and walk off ?
No, you read this book. You can learn about:
- conflict resolution
- self reliance
- and resilience.
You are also reminded to listen, really listen to those around you.
Listen to what they say, and listen to how they feel.
PS. Don't forget to laugh out loud.
