Book Details

"Of all the social

& coping skills

programs we've tried,

this one is the best."

- Mrs. Moran, teacher from

Norwood, Ohio

Fun, hands-on experiences that help children:

• develop age-appropriate social and coping skills

• improve self-esteem and ability to empathize

• improve self-control and decision-making

• see themselves as a leader in their own lives by

making a connection between their decisions in the

present and their experiences in the future.

Come see what the excitement is all about. The Mr. Emotions & Friends

program has had consistent success improving behaviors and decisionmaking

in young children. Included in this book are outlines for 10 workshops

that can be expanded or shortened to meet your needs.

With the Mr. Emotions & Friends curriculum you and your students can enter

a world of colorful and friendly puppet stories, catchy and fun songs, roleplaying,

discussion, story-telling and crafts that transform important life

lessons into memorable playful journeys.

This curriculum helps children and educators to begin talking the same

language of cooperation (I Use Words That Help), decision-making and selfcontrol

(Wait! Stop to Think. I Can Make a Good Choice), self-leadership (I am

a Leader), kindness and empathy (Be Kind, We’re In the World’s Family), and

self-worth (I am Important).

We have also included tools to document and analyze learning. By using

the pre and post questionnaires that we provide, you are able to identify

progress empirically. This will allow you to evaluate the areas that have been

mastered by your participants and where they need additional help.

The Mr. Emotions & Friends workshops were created by the founders of

Live It Like You Mean It, LLC in Cincinnati, Ohio. As is the case with all of

their workshops, this curriculum includes valuable lessons from the four

principles of self-leadership that they utilize as the foundation of all of their

training modules.

• You matter. Be yourself.

• Respect yourself and others.

• Your decisions are your future.

• Have goals and work to achieve them.
