Welcome to the ‘WOW’ board – A unique self-esteem tool for kids
The ‘WOW’ board has been developed for children who need a self-esteem boost and focus on the positive things that happen in their life. All children should feel good about who they are, recognise and acknowledge their strengths and have a ‘can do’ attitude! Get your child to start their year feeling uber positive about their life.
Welcome to the ‘WOW’ board…..
Regular use of the board will help children to:
- develop a healthy self-esteem
- take pride in their abilities
- handle problems well
- recognize the good things that happen to them
- learn from negative experiences
- start to talk more about their day with others
So how does your child use the ‘WOW’ board?
At the end of the day before your child goes to bed encourage them to write down what was ‘Good’, what was ‘Great’ and what was ‘WOW’ about their day. ‘Good’ may be that they enjoyed their school lunch. ‘Great’ could be they managed to finish their homework and ‘WOW’ may be that they got house points for doing well at school. Your child can just enter something under ‘Good’ or ‘Great’ – if they had an okay day then can write across the boxes ‘It was okay’. They should not feel pressured to make something up or feel discouraged from not having something ‘WOW’ to happen to them every day.
Make the ‘Wow’ board a daily habit
You can sit with your child or they can fill in the board on their own. Keep it in their bedroom or in a family room -the best place would be somewhere they will see the board every day before school and before they go to bed to remind them how well their day went. At the end of the week your child will be able to look at their ‘WOW’ board and see that good things happen to them.
The ‘WOW’ board can be used as and when you feel your child needs it or they can use it as part of their daily life. A huge benefit is that your child is able to look back and remind themselves of the good things that have happened in previous weeks and see that life is not always against them. The ‘WOW’ board can also be used generally as a prompt for children to remember what they did that day.
