A child's self-talk does not just happen. It emerges based upon what they hear from other people, especially their parents.
When children hear words of encouragement they learn to respect themselves.
When they hear words of criticism and blame they learn to feel worthless.
Here are some examples of affirmations to tell your child that will encourage their self-talk to be positive:
You Followed Directions
You Like To Help Others
You Stayed Calm
You Have Great Ideas
You Are Special And There Is No One Else Like You
