Meet Stretch More, a rubber-band character who loves video games and skateboarding, but also has behavior issues that frequently get him into trouble. Despite being a rubber band, Stretch is very inflexible!
The Adventures of Stretch More can help families with a child like Stretch — one who has difficulty adapting to changes, handling frustrations, and solving problems. The book includes three pick-your-path stories, and at key points in each story the reader gets to pick what happens next as Stretch learns to solve problems together with his parents and teacher. This book also includes an information section for parents.
This is the first children’s book to demonstrate Collaborative & Proactive Solutions, a therapy method developed by Ross Greene that presumes that kids act poorly because they lack the skills to deal with challenging situations. Together, parents and children learn how to defuse the tension and build a more supportive approach to improving behavior.
