14. Carola's nightmare
When children misbehave (or at least not the way we expect them to behave), we look for a thousand and one way to achieve a change in attitude. The stories are positioned as an excellent and useful educational resource that can make children realize that their behavior is not being appropriate. This is the case of Carola, a girl with a very bad mood who stars in this story. She gets angry with her parents and decides she wants to find better ones. Will you notice their bad behavior?
15. A friendship lost to bites
Almost all children usually go through a stage in which they tend to bite their parents or friends. Often this reaction is because they do not yet have the tools to express their anger or anger when something does not go their way. Parents must make children see that you cannot bite other people because we hurt them. And the story that we propose talks about it. Do not hesitate to read it together.
16. Ana and the mouse club
