Use a simple story from a book or a magazine article. Ex. Read the story of The Little Engine That Could. After reading the story discuss what the lesson learned. Then asked your child to see if they can recall a time that they felt unable to complete a task. If they are having a difficult time with this, give them an example of your own. Then you might be able to help them recall an experience of their own such as when they first had to learn to print.
Gather different experiences to make comparisons to. Ex. Goldilocks entering a stranger’s home. Would they ever do that?
