Mr. Smith’s pride and joy is his colorful flowers and perfectly manicured lawn.
So when he peers out his window to admire his masterpiece and sees the neighborhood kids traipsing through his yard and trampling his flowers, he roars “GET OFF MY LAWN!”
The thunderous scolding sends all the kids sprinting home and blaming mean Mr. Smith for ruining their fun. But one mom knows exactly where the blame really belongs and helps the children understand why they need to make amends for their damaging and disrespectful behavior.
Tips for parents and educators are included to help kids better understand how their behaviors can affect those around them.
