Popular television shows like Nick Jr.’s award winning program, Yo Gabba Gabba!, instill America’s youth with important life lessons. In the song “Don’t Bite Your Friends,” children learn to treat their friends with respect. To further help teach children lessons about positive behaviors, elementary teacher Angela Brent-Harris has penned Naughty Little Boy (published by AuthorHouse).

“Children nowadays have no boundaries and basically do whatever they want,” says Brent-Harris. “I see this everyday in supermarkets and other random places, as well as in schools as an educator.”

Devon was a naughty little boy who was a troublemaker and did not know how to behave. One day he got up early and snuck out of his house without his mother’s permission. Instead, Devon decided to go on a bout of destruction. He was on a spree of no-good until he got caught and punished. Because of his poor choices, he had to deal with the consequences of his actions.

“For a child, being allowed to randomly break the rules without suffering the consequences teaches them that they can do whatever they want and get away with it, creating discipline and authority figure issues when they are young,” Brent-Harris explains. “This may create even larger problems for the child as an adult when they discover too late that another word for rule is law, and another word for consequence is prison.”

Young readers are sure to enjoy reading Naughty Little Boy as they follow Devon and his often comical, mischievous actions. However, as they read, they will soon learn valuable lessons about the adult world, instilling in them lessons about proper behavior.
