Changing Negative Self-Talk Lesson and Activity
In order for children to maintain a healthy self-esteem, it’s important that they learn how to manage their negative self-talk.
As children go about their day, their inner voice is ever present. Always narrating their experiences. Their self-talk influences their behavior, how they feel about themselves, and how they interact with others.
Some of these thoughts are on auto-pilot and children are unaware of the negative content of their thoughts. This is why it’s important to help children understand their thoughts and be able to recognize and reframe negative thoughts that are unhelpful. This resource allows them to do just that.
This resource includes:
Reframing Negative Thoughts Worksheet
