I am persuading my mom to let my friend spend the night.

Storyboard Text

  • Mom, I really want Cindy to spend the night. I think you should let her.
  • Well, that IS an important life skill that she needs and it may change her bad habits if she learns how to do this.
  • No, she is rude to me, makes huge messes, and she is not a good friend to you!
  • If you will let her spend the night, I will have her apologize to you when she is rude, I will teach her to clean up her messes, and I will stand up for myself when she is mean to me.
  • I need more examples of how you plan to do these three things.
  • Well, you sound very serious about doing these things ....
  • I have heard her be polite to other adults. If she is rude to you and doesn't apologize I'll tell her she can't come over anymore.
  • So she has been polite to teachers and she would understand that being rude to me is unacceptable. Hmmm, that's good.
  • Her mom is never home, so she never learned how to clean up her messes. I would start by showing her how to clean up our kitchen dishes after we have made cookies.
  • And last, I usually just let her say mean things to me because I'm worried she won't be my friend. But I will be strong and stand up for myself by telling her I will not play with her anymore if she doesn't treat me better. I will share this with you if it happens.
  • So, if you will give Cindy another chance to spend the night I will make sure she understands she must be polite to you, and I will make sure she doesn't leave any messes, and last I will not stand for her being mean to me!
  • Ok, you convinced me to give her another chance to come over and spend the night.
