Positive Language Guide: Strategies to Encourage Independence
Thousands of families are putting our Positive Language approach into practice, thanks to our bestselling Guide to Positive Language Strategies + Interactive Workbook.
As part of our ongoing commitment to support families, caregivers, and educators, we’ll be releasing new thematic Positive Language guides. First up, Positive Language Strategies to Encourage Independence!
In this guide you’ll find:
★ Safe ways to encourage risk taking
★ Language prompts to help you model problem solving
★ Tips to help your child advocate for himself/herself
★ Strategies that teach your child how to identify and address his/her own needs
Positive Language helps children navigate everyday situations with a greater sense of confidence and independence. This approach also empowers children to modify their own behavior. Rather than emphasizing negative behavior, Positive Language offers children kinder, safer alternatives that they can (and will) use independently. This means less hovering for us and more problem solving for them! When you put Positive Language strategies into practice, you’ll experience how small shifts in language can have an enormous impact on the entire family.
