It's never too early to teach our kids to set the tone for their day and create a positive mind set. When Jacob was in first grade at San Elijo elementary, they gave us this affirmation which still today is posted in our home...
I can be anything I want to be.
I am an important person in this world.
My attitude is the best,
and I can cooperate.
I can dream dreams and
make those dreams come true.
Every new day is an opportunity
to improve myself.
I can take a risk; it may be difficult,
but it is possible.
It is never too late for me to improve.
I will learn from my mistakes.
I WILL! I CAN! I MUST!
When life gets hard or attitudes are poor, return to your positive affirmation so that kids can learn that they choose their attitude.
