*DISCLAIMER: For some reason, Amazon linked two of my reviews to the same page. This particular review is for the "Fighting" book, not the "Being a Bad Sport" book. It is the EXACT same review, but linked to two separate pages. Sorry about that*

The "Help Me Be Good" series of books were the best lessons I ever learned as a child. I would go into my closet, in my quiet space and read book after book. They kept my attention and I truly learned how to treat people with respect. I'm 25 now, but I grew up on this series of books and they taught me exactly what they were aiming to teach. I'm grateful for them even now, 15-20 years later!

Parents always tell their children not to do something without actually teaching them why-these books taught me WHY I SHOULDN'T do bad things and I am grateful. So grateful that I held onto the books as a teen. But I finally passed them down to my little cousins and they are the most well behaved children you will see. I felt so good reading these books because it taught me that good behavior is rewarded and bad behavior is frowned upon. Not only should your child read these books, but you can further teach them why they should be good and not bad.

I passed them down to my cousins who passed them down to others. And I think they are still relevant. Definitely buy this book as well as other ones in this series of books! I learned and so can your child.

This book teaches it is important not to fight cause you can end up hurting someone else and getting hurt yourself and people's property. It teaches how to avoid fights such as staying away from people who make you angry (although sometimes this is not possible). Don't spend too much time with one person or you will drive each other nuts. Also try to avoid people who want to pick a fight and go get help if needed. When you are angry, instead of flying off the handle, take some deep breaths and calm down first. When you are calm, then talk to the person about why it makes you angry. Also be willing to listen to the other person's side. It also teaches that it is important to compromise.

I love the idea of the child being able to read and see that their behavior is not exceptable. It is an optional discipline method for those of us who have tried everything.

Arrived quickly! We read it a few times and it helped my preschooler to reflect on 'rude' behavior
