Wanda “Want It Now” Weasel: (Patience/Self-Control) There are qualities (skills) that are necessary for success in everything but they are often ignored. Very simply, they are the skills of being Patient and Persistent. After reading this fable, your child will understand why Wanda got her nickname. Most of us would like to have, what we want, when we want it. But we may have learned soothing self-messages, which allow us to not get overly upset when that does not happen. It is typical for children to have low frustration tolerance. They don't see themselves as being unreasonable; they see everyone else as frustrating their attempts to be happy. The fable will help you teach your children that “patience and persistence are positives”.
