How to respond when they are so negative
I was wondering if anyone else has negative talkers. My DS is so hard on himself even over the little things. He is overly hard on himself if he gets repremanded and I am not even agry with him and I tell him that, disappointed with his poor decisions but not angry.
I even tried to steer him away from his usual "I just always mess up, I am such an idiot" and sit him down and ask him to stop being negative and tell me 3 positive and wonderful things about himself. Then I ask him to repeat "this is just a learning lesson"....
What experiences have you had and how did you redirect them... oh a side note my son has ADHD/NOS and we are in the process of starting medication so hopefully once things can be controlled and thought out sooner the "in trouble" as he sees things will be reduced and his negative talk will stop as well.
