By Becky Bridges, C.S.W., A.C.P. A game to help impulsive children think before they act. In this ever-popular board game, active, impulsive children learn motor control, relaxation skills, how to express their feelings, and how to problem-solve.

The object of the game is to proceed through the Feelings, Stop, Relax, and Think sections of the game board to Finish, collecting chips along the way. The player with the most chips when the game ends wins. Recommended for children ages 6-12.

Players get chips for resolving anger situations, and the player with the most chips wins the game. The game is designed to be played in counseling sessions, the classroom, or even the home.
