A Word Parents Should Remember to Use

Even though we are a positive education school and we want our students to approach life with a positive framework, we do realise that we cannot always have this mindset.Sometimes we do think negatively. The other day I was at a course where I heard a great word for parents to have available when their children speak negatively about their abilities. Sentences like – I’m no good at sport!, I’m not a good singer! I can’t do my tables! Parents should use the word ‘YET’ Finishing off their sentence with the word yet give hope to improving. You can then have a conversation about what strategies they can use to improve. Very few of us are born with the natural ability to achieve certain skills. Most of us have to work hard and practise often to become great at something we like.
