MODEL: Brainstorm with yourself, your friends, and your partner, little moment to moment experiences of your own that you could voice aloud in the course of each day. Let them see the progression: (1) That’s new, I don’t think I want to do that. (2) Yet, I wonder – maybe there are different ways I could to deal with it. (3) Trying, and being frustrated (4) Getting yourself to the point of nonchalantly saying, “Well that didn’t work; let me try something else.” (5) Celebrating—”Wow that felt so good! I didn’t even want to do it, and now it feels great that I did something hard.” Just for your child to witness – keep going about it as if their presence had nothing to do with it.⠀
