After having a bad start to the morning, Otto struggles to have positive interactions with his friends at school. During the day, he learns that he's having these difficulties because he is doing things backwards compared to what a true friend would do. He's being a "Dneirf." With the help of a school counselor and some friends, Otto turns his day, and himself, in the right direction, becoming a true forward friend once again.

This story is a fantastic resource to teach children that social conflict is normal and can and will occur within friendships due to backwards behavior, not necessarily bullying. Sometimes friends just need a little help to turn those backwards behaviors forward again.

Be A Friend, Not a Dneirf!
