Will This End Well?

by Dr. Maria Duroseau, Pediatrician and Mom

"Will this end well?" - The BIG question every child should ask before acting!

In this delightfully illustrated book, author Dr. Maria Duroseau, a pediatrician and mom, shares the powerful "Will this end well?" question that can help kids avoid impulsive decisions that can ultimately lead to tears, troubles, and tantrums.

Meet Jimmy: a bright, creative, and energetic elementary student. Jimmy does some things that get him into trouble sometimes. He blurts out in class, takes other people's things, changes the rules of games, and acts without thinking through the consequences. His impulsive behavior leaves him struggling with angry teachers, disappointed friends, and frustrated family members.

But when Jimmy starts pausing to ask himself the BIG question "Will this end well?" everything changes!

Through funny stories and engaging examples, kids will learn to evaluate if their potential actions could:

  • Get them hurt or in trouble
  • Hurt someone else
  • Damage property
  • Cause other negative issues

By simply asking "Will this end well?" Jimmy discovers he can stop the needless trouble at home and school!

Dr. Duroseau provides an easy, kid-friendly tool for fostering wise decision-making skills. Children will delight in following Jimmy's (mis)adventures while learning how to pause and question first.

The book also includes a Parent Letter from the author with tips for helping kids apply "Will this end well?".
