Little Prince: (Manipulation/Anger) Demanding that you should “Get my way” may be annoying in children and infuriating in adolescents but as adults, it is destructive (in relationships and careers) It is now time to address this issue with our Little Prince fable. Demandingness is frequently the basis of our anger. If our belief system is full of musts, oughts and shoulds, then we will be irrationally demanding of our environment, others and even ourselves and be quick to anger. Children are by their nature, irrational, hedonistic and tyrannical. This fable will allow your children to see the consequences of childish demandingness.
