Parents will understand that it is critical
to structure techniques/situations to help children say productive
things about their own behavior for themselves, to themselves.
Parents will learn how to guide their
children to take the values they selected in Lesson Seven, and phrase them
into Personal, Present, and Positive statements of self-talk
(affirmations) that will become the guides to productive decision
Parents will gain confidence in their
ability to guide their children in the selection of very productive and
positive "ideas to rule their worlds."
Parents will learn how to teach their children about some of the roadblocks that may stand in their way as they begin to select and structure the ideas that will rule their world.
The ideas in our children's heads do rule
their worlds, so we must teach them to input positive and productive
ideas in a manner that will bring success. Everybody wants success and
fulfillment so why not give your kid the gift that keeps on giving…the
power of productive self-talk.
It doesn't matter what you say; it is what
your child says to him/herself that will determine what becomes their
Dreams without proper structure or wording
become empty and disappointing letdowns but with expert parental
guidance, they become the stairsteps to fulfillment and success.
Parents will sit down with their children to
write some Personal, Present, and Positive statements from their list of
possibilities created since last class. Remember: any time that you, as
parent, are involved with helping your children to word goals and
affirmations you must let the child choose the topic of the goal and it
must not be one of their "real" goals because the "real" ones must be
kept a secret!
Next, parents should encourage their kids to go through the process of wording all of their "top twenty " into affirmations in Personal, Present, and Positive affirmations.
