RJ is making a lot of trips to his "time-out" chair! Without telling anyone, he and his best friend Sam decide to walk home from school instead of riding the bus. Later the two of them are caught trying to use Dad's computer to get onto the Internet. After their piano lesson, RJ and his sister Blanche snack on Mom's triple-layer double-chocolate cake and spoil Grandma's birthday surprise.
Dad helps RJ learn how to do a better job of asking for permission, and when RJ and Sam return to school their principal has them practice making an apology. RJ feels a lot happier when he says he's sorry to the bus driver and Grandma, and he learns that asking for permission will mean fewer trips to the time-out chair!
This book is the third title in the BEST ME I Can Be! series to teach children social skills that can make home life happier and school more successful. Tips for parents and educators on how to teach and reinforce the skills are included.
