“You can do anything you want to, as long as you put your mind to it.”“You are smart. You are beautiful. You are important.”
Hearing things like this from someone you love is important. So don't forget to continue to tell your kids their possibilities are endless…their dreams can come true…and that you believe in them.
What do you think you would hear if you listened to a recording what you say to your kids every day. I know what I would hear: Get your feet off the table, We need to put our PJ's on now, eat your breakfast please. Hurry, we're gonna be late!!! We all would But you’ll also hear me say the same thing my mom said to me every, single night, "You can do anything you want to as long as you put your mind to it."
Positive repetition. It’s important. What do you want your kids to hear?
After all is said and done in the day. No matter how their behavior was or your day went, end it on something positive. It will make all the difference. So say it, over and over and over again. In this time of year when it’s all about the “gifts”, be sure to remind them just how much their worth and capable of by just being themselves!
