Build-A-Bear is the clever title to the Rocketoons episode on assertiveness. For some kids, assertiveness comes naturally; for others, it’s a real challenge. It’s important for kids to understand that the courage to be assertive is something they can develop.
Assertiveness takes confidence and confidence comes with practice. This inspiring and engaging cartoon is designed to encourage thinking and discussions about what it takes to speak out, be assertive, and stand up for yourself. Parents, teachers, and caregivers can use Episode 10 to guide a conversation (Cartoonversation) on how to overcome the difficulties of being assertive.
