When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Teaching our kids to persevere through tough times is vital, especially today as the world gets smaller, the opportunities bigger and the competition tougher. Here are 5 sentences you can use to encourage your child when you can see them struggling through a mammoth task or small chore:
- I believe in you
- Take a break and come back to it.
- Making mistakes means you’re trying.
- It’s ok to not be perfect all the time.
- Give it your best shot!
Go on, change your vocabulary and take the first step towards raising a child with a never-give-up attitude.
