To help children feel good about themselves. To help raise the level of fitness and self-esteem in our students. To help students believe they can accomplish whatever they put their mind and effort to.
Have you ever heard the following;
“Believe that you can or believe that you can’t,
either way you are right.”
“Some see the glass half full, others see it half empty.
Who is right?”
Our beliefs control our thoughts. Many children enter our program with limiting thoughts and beliefs. Often these children will say “I can’t” before they even attempt a new challenge. It is an important part of our job to help change this negative expectation. We do this with language (replacing “can’t” with words and thoughts like “I’m scared”, “I don’t know how”, or “I need help”) and by creating challenges that they can successfully accomplish.
To help build confidence in children (an expectation of future success), we must create frequent success experiences for them while avoiding unnecessary (predictable) failures. We do this by only asking them to do what they are capable of doing (not setting them up for failure) while developing their abilities and increasing their skills.
