The Guide: Positive Language Strategies
Whether you’re hoping to tackle challenging moments, enhance everyday conversations, or inspire open dialogue about big topics, we’ve got you covered! Our comprehensive guide includes real life examples and consists of three types of positive language strategies:
Positive language vs. negative language
Become familiar with positive language alternatives to common statements like “Don’t hit!” and “Stop throwing sand!” You’ll receive language strategies for specific scenarios that every parent, caregiver, or educator is bound to experience.
Positive language strategies for challenging moments
Learn how to set limits and offer meaningful consequences using a positive language approach. Responding to challenging moments in this way clarifies expectations and provides children with valuable opportunities to modify their own behavior.
Positive language for everyday conversations
Desperate to get your child talking after a long day apart? Wondering how to respond when your child requests help for the 100th time? Our positive language strategies will serve you well. We’ll explain the difference between encouragement and praise (and why it matters) and even help you tackle big topics like bodily consent!
