Do you want your growth mindset story to be featured on the Big Life Kids Podcast? Submit your story to Leo & Zara.
In this episode, children will:
- learn how to stop seeking approval from other people
- understand the importance of doing things for yourself, instead of other people
- Be inspired by graffiti artist Sandra Fabara, aka Lady Pink
- Sandra, aka Lady Pink, found the superpower inside of her was that she could be proud of herself instead of needing approval from someone else. Describe an experience where you have been proud of yourself. What was the experience like?
- In this episode, we heard about Leo’s comic book “Brulee Boy.” If you could come up with a comic book character, what would their name be? What would their superpower be?
- You don’t need to win an award from someone else in order to feel proud of yourself. If you could give YOURSELF an award, what would it be?

1. Write affirmations on the mirror. Help your children use sticky notes or washable markers to place encouraging phrases on the mirror. This way, when they look in the mirror, they will be reminded of their strengths.
2. Try out the “I am Uniquely Me” activity from our Podcast Season 1 & 2 Printable Kit. This activity allows your child to reflect on everything that makes them who they are.
3. Make a “My Wins” list, as described HERE. Have your child make a list of moments they felt proud of themselves. They can also reflect on why they felt proud in that moment and what it felt like.
