Parents attending the parenting class have the opportunity to do "home work" to earn more baby bucks" to spend at the Pregnancy Center's store (diapers, clothes, equipment, etc). The following is the worksheet I created to use with the group tonight. I have also printed off four copies to use myself... I am going to fill one out for each of my children and give it to them... something to hold on to and read about the positives I believe for them! I need to be reminded of this as much as the next parent... our words hold so much power... for good or bad! (I apologize for the font size.. for some reason it is showing up SO BIG! It isn't this big on the worksheet.)
Building Positives into our Children!
Human nature naturally falls to the negative, it takes an act of will to focus on the positive. Positives BUILD, Negatives TEAR DOW!! Choose to BUILD up with POSITIVES!
In the boxes below fill out at least THREE positive things you want for your child (or positive character traits you want for your child) in each of the following areas. Focusing on the positives will overcome the negatives. Don’t label a child with a negative trait or it will stick and tear them down…. Build your child up with positive comments/ labels and it will build them up!
