Mr Big is strong, Mr Big is tough, Mr Big is ...well ...big! He has just one small problem - because of the way he looks he just can't get people to stick around. How can he show them that although he may look a little scary, he is just a great big softy inside?

Spontaneous Compliments - Mulbarton Infant School
Mulbarton Infant had been delivering PATHS for a month when a situation was observed by a member of staff during a music lesson. A boy became very upset at the prospect of an after school football club. However two other boys came to the rescue and spontaneously started to compliment him on his ability as a footballer. This helped him to feel happier about playing football after school. On another occasion a very quiet child who doesn’t normally speak at school was overheard giving a spontaneous compliment to another child.
