The Big Idea: Confidence and self-esteem can build the strength that it takes to cope with big feelings that might otherwise cause challenging behavior. Help kids celebrate who they are and how they’re growing.
Helping Kids Celebrate Strengths
- Watch the video, then help kids put their own words into the song: “What I am is _________.” What are some good things they can say about themselves? Their friends?
- Ask kids to share something they are proud of. Remembering their great qualities and successes will help build the confidence and determination to work through tough feelings and meet new challenges.
