Wolfie The Wolfe - a story about aggression
There is a story that teaches students what to do when you are angry. Tsveta Misheva-Aleksova - a child psychologist and Milena Manova - psychotherapist wrote some stories in the collection "Why always me?" Selected situations present common conflicts that we do not always know how to respond.There are games that help students understand the situation at the end of each story.
Wolfie The Wolf was aggressive and stubborn. He shouted and beating anyone who did not do what he wanted. Mother Wolf and Father Wolf tried to use all sorts of methods to calm him down, but they did not succeed. Then they took Wolfie The Wolf in the dark cave where Snake lived . In the middle of the cave there was a fireplace surrounded by stones. Snake listened carefully to Wolfie The Wolf and his parents. Then Wolfie The Wolf was left alone with the Snake. The Snake showed him the fireplace. The Snake removed a stone from the fireplace , the fire came out of the fireplace and lit the dry sticks nearby on fire.
Then The Snake explained to Wolfie The Wolf that the fire in the fireplace is like his anger and is raging in his body. But only the magic stones can stop this fire not to come out and destroy or hurt something or someone. Stones help the fire to burn in the right direction.
Wolfie The Wolf asked how he could find such magical stones. The Snake replied that everyone can discover them themselves.
And Wolfie The Wolf leaned over and read the inscriptions of the magic stones around the fireplace:
"Close the eyes and count to 10"
"I say I am angry" ...
The Snake gave to Wolfie The Wolf one of his stones. It was written on the stone - "I determine the direction of the fire"
