Pepper throws a tantrum & Pepper gets stage fright
Pepper Throws a Tantrum
Very relevant to my kids who are very tantrum-prone. Pepper comes back from a party and refuses to change his "ghummi" dress and wear "nindu" dress. He bawls, stamps his foot, rolls on the floor until at last he is forced to relent and get changed. So now whenever they cry I immediately comment that they are behaving like bad boy Pepper Duggi. It has certainly made them aware of how they look when they throw a tantrum or perhaps now they know the correct steps of throwing a tantrum are as mentioned above.
Pepper gets Stage Fright
Another very relevant book as the kids do a lot of stage recitation an dall in school. They enjoyed the book thoroughly because of the expressions on Pepper's face.
Pepper has to recite a rhyme on stage and he is constantly told by parents/ teacher that do well, all eyes will be on you. This and the crowd makes him nervous and he forgets the poem he was so confidently rehearsing all along. Until a prompt from Daddy makes him forget his fear. Probably it is a lesson for us parents who are so worried about the fact that everyone will be watching and judging our kids on stage. Perhaps there is a better way of motivating our kids than this.
