This program emphasizes the power of positive “self-talk.” It encourages elementary school children to concentrate on what they can do, not what they can’t do. Viewers realize that one accomplishment can give them the confidence to accomplish even more.
In this program, the leader of an after-school group is surprised to hear all of the negative things that the kids have to say about themselves. So she decides that, for the Parents’ Show, each one will have to demonstrate something about themselves they are proud of. This helps them change how they think about themselves.
