Some children’s first response to attempting something new is “I can’t do it” – therefore, they are already partly defeated by their own self doubt when they try.
Positive self esteem makes children more confident and helps them form new friendships more easily. They will feel comfortable asking questions and therefore benefit from learning more at school, which in turn will make their lessons enjoyable. They will feel more assertive and less fearful of any new challenges, like starting High School for instance.
When children are encourage with the first attitude card below “I can do it”, they will be taught the importance of perseverance to help them resolve problems, attack difficult sums, ride a bike, learn to swim or whatever it is they want to do.
We aim to do away with self doubt!
