How to Empower Kids with ChattySnaps
I am out of this world excited about this blog post and sharing how to empower kids with ChattySnaps for two reasons. The first reason is because I totally believe in this product and what it can do for kids. The second reason is because I designed the “snaps’ and put the collection together. The power of ‘I AM” statements is unmeasurable and I am hopeful that kids (of all ages) will soon be running around with ChattySnaps that empower them to be their best selves hanging from their backpacks, lunch boxes and all the things.
What is an “I AM” Statement?
Are you wondering, what is an “I AM” statement? The answer is so simple. “I AM” statements are things that you would like to be, do and have (best in that order even). Building confidence in kids starts with supporting a positive self image. By stating out loud or in writing that I am CREATIVE, the idea of being successfully creative is reinforced in my mind. The message I send to my own brain is that I am creative because I say so. The statements are a powerful way to change your child’s mindset in a just a few minutes a day. But, it takes work. Choose the words that work. Talk about them. Most importantly, read them out loud and say them every single day.
IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT ‘I AM” Statements and Being Mindful with Kids
Being mindful of the words that are being planted is important. The subjective mind is 100% subjective which is not like the conscious mind. The subjective mind accepts what it is given so whatever message you are putting on repeat will matter as it becomes fixed in the subconscious mind.
Teaching kids to be mindful is super important. Guide them towards statements that will help encourage them to grow and flourish while building confidence and self-esteem.
Some studies show that Studies show that on average, our thoughts can be up to 70% negative. Add to that, we tend that think the same things over again and again – day after day. Be mindful with kids that they are working to create positive thoughts.
ChattySnaps Empowerment Series by Laura Kelly
There are six empowerment sets to collect in this first launch. Because the “snaps” are interchangeable, the four “snaps” that come in each set (with a tail that holds three) can be switched up with “snaps” from other collections including the other empowerment sets!
Here are the six sets!
