Sometimes, it can be hard to find someone to talk to when you need help or advice!
Especially, when we’re at school and suddenly feel sad, confused, or angry! But, that’s what you’re bathroom bestie is for!
Do you know who your bathroom bestie is? YOU ARE! These affirmations are feel-good messages that you can repeat throughout the day!
Why the Affirmations are necessary:
According the Gottman Institute, “while the world has been focused on academic achievement in childhood, emotional self-regulation has been largely ignored. This is a poor strategy, given that research suggests emotional intelligence is twice as strong a predictor as IQ of later success.”
In fact, research has shown that “When a child can make a change to address a problem, they engage in problem-focused coping by identifying the trouble and making a plan for dealing with it. When they deem the problem unsolvable, they engage in emotion-focused coping by working to tolerate and control distress.”
These simple affirmations provide powerful reminders to help children to positively navigate through trying situations or negative thoughts.
