Ryan is frustrated because he can't complete his maths homework. On every page, the reader has to decide what Ryan should do, and depending on this decision, the consequences for him are different. Ryan's good choices result in positive feedback from others and a better understanding of his problems, but his poor choices only cause more difficulties. The accompanying workbook is designed to help children deal with the inevitable frustrations they will encounter in their lives. The activities reveal 12 useful techniques for dealing with frustration including: • Setting goals • Breaking tasks down into small steps • Rewarding their own efforts • Handling stress • Being patient with themselves and others.
