CARDS OF POSITIVITY.
Being a kid is not always easy. We all need a regular hit of positivity whether we are 2 or 92.
This month we are featuring the brilliant YesMum Mini cards as a way of doing this. These are the creation of Hollie de Cruz @theyesmummum and are positive statement cards that you use with your children.
They come in packs of 31 cards and are brilliant as a conversation starter or a way of bolstering your children’s self-esteem. They are a great tool for helping them to recognise their qualities.
We are featuring 3 of them as a starting point.
HOW TO USE THEM:
This is what Hollie recommends: A great way to start the day is by choosing a positive card together each morning (start with the 3 featured in the image above). Read it aloud five times and encourage them to embrace it for the rest of their day.
For younger children, you could explain that they are cards for strength, and that if they say them often enough they’ll have the power to become true. For older children they can be used for specific issues, so if they’re having a hard time learning a new skill or with homework, pick out “I can do anything I out my mind to” and encourage them to recite it until they feel stronger.
You can create your own cards with your children if you want to.
