*Listener question on how do we teach a can-do attitude to kids.
Where does this "can't do" attitude come from?
My favorite ways to counteract the I can't attitude and create kiddos that are confident.
I had a listener call in this week and ask a fantastic question on how to turn an "I can't" attitude into a can-do attitude. We have been dealing with this ourselves as a family and have put together some strategies that have turned out to be quite effective.
Simply put, the I can't attitude is typically birthed out one of two (or a combination) things: self-worth or the desire for least resistance. Kids that don't think they can do things...well...don't think they can do things. If not that, kids that have realized with some whining, non-compliance, or arguing Mom and Dad will do it for me.
Today we cover 6 things that are combat-effective at teaching kids that they can do it, but also get them to believe it themselves.
