What’s the story about?
Story Description: Here is a story scenario you can use to help teach about the need for Self-Mentoring when you are a victim of name-calling. The way you choose to respond can either lead to a LOSE-LOSE confrontation where both people feel like they lost, a WIN-LOSE confrontation where only one person feels like the victor, or a WIN-WIN confrontation where both people manage to come out feeling like winners.
In this story called “Jacob Listens to his Inner Wisdom,” Jacob not only manages to recall advice from a teacher, a friend, and his sisters, he tunes into his Inner Wisdom to select the response that will transform a LOSE-LOSE situation to a WIN-WIN.
