The history of the Manolita tortoise
: 'I know a turtle named Manolita, thatgets into many problems.
When he is in school and sees that the exercises do not go well, he breaks them. When the teacher scolds him, he gets angry. And if someone in the yard pushes it without wanting to, it hits her. But Manolita does not feel good doing all this
. It feels very sad. He knows that he should not have done that, but at that moment he feels very angry and can not think. A day when Manolita was very sad because her teacher had punished her, she found a much older and more experienced turtle. The tortoise said:- Manolita, do not you realize that the solution to your problems is in the shell?
When you feel that anger, you have to get into the shell and count to 10
. Manolita decided to try. When someone inadvertently pushed him, he got into his shell and counted to 10. And also when things went bad or he was scolded ... And it worked!When she came out of the shell, she no longer felt angry
and she was much better. ' This technique is very useful for nervous children , with behavioral problems and even for children with ADHD. To make it work, you must remind him of the story and also that he must count to 10 each time he feels the urge to scream, break something or hit.
