Use your notebook to jot down ideas about the cognitive skills children need for living a healthy and functional life, whether these ideas are triggered by the stories you have just read, the cognitive behavior therapy literature, or what you see one child do that might be helpful for another. It may help to start to structure these stories of creating helpful thought processes into the following therapeutic characteristics:

■ The cognitive problems or challenges faced by the main character

■ The processes of thinking that would help resolve that problem

■ An outcome that opens up new possibilities or better equips the child for managing such situations in the future
