What’s in the CBT Inspired Poster

The coping statements featured in this free pdf are:

  • It’s okay to have a not-okay day.
  • Just because I’m thinking something does not make it true.
  • This feeling is uncomfortable but it will pass.
  • I’ve dealt with harder situations and I know it will get better.
  • It’s not that great right now, but it’s not the worst thing either.
  • I prefer something else, but I can deal with this too.
  • This hurts, so I need to be extra kind to myself.
  • Not everything will go my way, but I can be flexible.

We are COVID homeschoolers and with that comes BIG feeling for all of us. We are going to hang this in our living room in a special “quiet” spot where our child can reflect when having a hard time. This also gives us some good phrases to use when us parents are having a hard day.
