Watch this music video together with your child. Dance and sing along! Then, on a piece of paper, write three positive statements about yourselves as a family. Begin each statement with, “What we are is_________.” For example, “What we are is loving.”
Read your statements to your child. Let him know, “These words make me feel good. They remind me of things I’m proud of about our family. I’m going to look at these words when I’m sad or mad or scared.” Invite your child to decorate the paper. Display it as a reminder of your strengths.
