Sample text

Sometimes the way we think prevents us from recognizing our competence and paralyzes confidence. This is true for children, too. To be able to get past difficulties, we first have to be able to stop thinking in a self-destructive manner. ❂ No more lectures.

We need to know how children think so that we can put them in the driver’s seat as they develop solutions for themselves.

They can use their cognitive abilities to rethink the situation, reframe it, “decatastrophize” it, and find workable solutions.
