• Self-talk during daily activities 

Share your positive self-talk. “I’m not giving up even though I am frustrated. I can do this.” Suggest positive self-talk when you see your child is reluctant to try something new. Whisper in their ear, “Estelle, I know you can do it! Tell yourself, ‘I can do it!’
