Let’s face it—Kids can be brutally honest. And while telling the truth is a good thing, saying EXACTLY what you are thinking can often lead to hurt feelings. That’s why we need to help kids learn how to filter their thoughts before them blurting out.
For this activity, we have created a worksheet with a list of statements and two columns: “Think it” or “Say it.” Your child has to decide which statements would be better to keep to them-self and which ones are okay to say out loud.
Bonus: To extend this activity, especially with an older child, have them rewrite the “Think it” statements in a way that would make them okay to say out loud.
