Kids do things before they think ALL THE TIME! Help them learn self-control and reduce their disruptive behaviors with this fun story.

When you’re a child, it’s not easy to control your impulses. Children aren’t always aware that what they are doing is inappropriate.

Third-grader Braden loves to be the center of attention. His comic genius, as he sees it, causes his friends to look at him in awe.

But some poor decision-making, like ill-timed jokes in class and an impulsive reaction during gym that left a classmate teary-eyed and crumpled on the floor, forces the adults in Braden’s life to teach him about impulse control.

But will the lessons shared by his teachers and his mom really help Braden manage his impulses? Young readers will enjoy this story filled with relatable and common situations all children share.

What Were You Thinking? shows kids how to think before they act, and is part of the Executive FUNction series of books by author and school counselor Bryan Smith. Written for kids ages 5-10 (Grades K-5), this storybook includes tips for parents, counselors and teachers.
