Once upon a time, there was a boy named Ayden. Ayden loved spending time with his wise granddaddy, Granddaddy Jack. Granddaddy Jack always said, 'Think, Ayden! Thinking helps you make good decisions.' Ayden heard this message throughout his life and now it was time for him to apply it.
One day, Ayden found himself in a tricky situation. He was playing outside with his friends when they came across a broken birdhouse. Ayden's friends wanted to break it even more, but Ayden had to 'Think!' What should he do?
Ayden remembered Granddaddy Jack's advice. He thought about the feelings of the birds that lived in the birdhouse. He imagined how sad they would be if their home got destroyed. Ayden decided to fix the birdhouse instead of breaking it further. This made him feel happy inside!
Another time, Ayden was at school during lunchtime. He saw his classmate, Lily, sitting all alone. Ayden knew it was important to 'Think!' What should he do?
Ayden remembered Granddaddy Jack's advice again. He thought about how he would feel if he were sitting alone. Ayden decided to invite Lily to sit with him and his friends. Lily's face lit up with joy, and they all had a great time together!
One more time, Ayden was going to the store with his mom. As they passed a candy aisle, Ayden saw a colorful bag of candy he really wanted. Ayden knew it was important to 'Think!' What should he do?
Ayden remembered Granddaddy Jack's advice once more. He thought about how his mom had told him they needed to save money. Ayden decided not to ask for the candy and instead, he saved his money for something special in the future. Ayden felt proud of his decision!
