I bet you CAN…Challenging Your Kids to Believe in Themselves

Today my son took 6 trips to bring all his matchbox cars out into the family room to play with them.  We built ramps and had races.  He crashed and wrecked them.  Pure fun.

After he was done, he needed to put them all away.  The putting away part is never as much fun as the getting out or playing parts.  He was a little bit whiny and I could tell this was one of those moments when the situation could turn on you.

“…there’s so many to put away…(pout face).”

“I bet you can carry ALL of the cars at one time.”

His face changed a bit.  “No I can’t.”

“OOOOO…I have an idea.  Here, hold you’re shirt out like this and I’ll load it up with all your cars.”

His face lit up.  “YEAH”

He giggled the entire time it took to put all the cars in his shirt and all the way into his bedroom to put them away.

“Daddy!  Look, I can carry ALL my cars at one time!”  He was so proud.  :)
