The brand new Reframing Your Thoughts Toolkit provides children with the knowledge, skills and tools to help them to think about and approach things in a way that promotes their confidence, happiness and resilience. It offers ample support for helping children to understand and manage big emotions and feelings and generally view and approach things in life in a helpful, empowering and positive way. The kit also provides a real opportunity for opening up conversations with children enabling you to gain valuable insights into how they are thinking and feeling about different situations. As parents and carers can play a huge part in influencing how children feel about, view and approach things in life, there’s lots of support for adults in the kit as well exploring how we can help children with learning to embrace an empowering reframing mindset. While the toolkit has been designed for 6-12 year olds it offers plenty for older children too (and even adults).
Inside each cute travel friendly box you’ll find…
– ‘A Note for the Kids’ cards which set the scene, take a look at how our thoughts work, introduce reframing and growth mindset, and outline how the Rainbow Card Toolkit can be used;
– ‘A Note for the Adults’ cards which provide practical guidance about how adults can help kids to develop a reframing approach to life; and
– 25 reframe cards. On the front you‘ll find the reframe. On the back you’ll find all sorts of practical support and guidance that kids can use to bring each reframe to life. To give you an idea, you can find out more about what the back of one of the cards says here.
Reframing can transform the way children (and adults) think about and approach things in life and can provide a fantastic tool for promoting their emotional health and well-being. The Rainbow Card Toolkit offers a great way to get children started.
The Rainbow Toolkit has been developed based on extensive research and has also been shared with experts in the field as part of the consultation process.
