It takes 100 positive statements to negate every negative statement your child hears about themselves.
Make sure the words you use with your child are words of encouragement and praise, not of lack or fear. I am not saying to praise your child when they do something wrong. I will address discipline in another post. What I am saying, is when your child tells you they want to be president someday, who are you to discourage them? If they want to go to the moon, by all means encourage their dreams and aspiration, no matter how wild you may think they are. Who knows your child could be the next…
Bottom line, it will be their job to do the heavy lifting in their dreams, it is your job to help foster and believe in those dreams and your child. It is also your job to help your child acquire the skillsets and tools that will enable the achievement of those dreams. Choose words of encouragement and praise.
