Grizzly Bear Story
Grizzly Bear Story: (Fear/Self-Control) There are always going to be “Grizzly Bear” situations in our life. What are the important skills you develop or fail to develop to deal with life difficulties? There are three main characters in this story dealing with such a difficulty, which one is your child? This story is about learning that your thinking determines your emotions and behaviors. A "threatening" situation in the story, a "grizzly bear" is any situation, which typically evokes a strong negative emotion. These can range from anger to fear to guilt to sadness. You may recognize yourself or your child as one of the first two characters in the fable. The goal is for all of us to be able to eventually see ourselves (and our children) as the third character in our fable.
