Day 4: Teaching Resilience: Overcoming mistakes with positive self-talk

We don’t want kids to shy away from mistakes. Fear of making a mistake can keep our kids from trying new things. Instead, we want to encourage resilience by learning how to get back up after mistakes and keep going.

    Action Step:

    • Download the Daily Download: Positive Self-Talk for kids. Review it with your child.
    • Turn negative self-talk into something positive. Refer to this sheet when your child encounters obstacles. Teach your child to use these phrases to promote a growth mindset.
