“Children develop confidence not because family and friends praise them, but because of their own accomplishments. They become more self-assured as they learn and complete new tasks and goals.” – The Child Mind Institute

To take this a step further we believe discussion and accountability are huge factors in assuring completion of set goals and that is exactly what “because I said I would.” offers to those who participate. Dr. Kogut and our team at myKIDSdds love this movement because not only does it build confidence in those writing down their promise but also impacts those watching. This is why we charge each other, our patients and the parents in our practice to consider what making a promise and keeping it might mean to you, to your parents, friends, children and/or to complete strangers. In the following weeks we are going to be sharing ways to help generate promises, tips on ways to keep those promises, as well as, sharing promises made by our team and patients. In this video Dr. Kogut explains what “because I said I would” means to him, why he feels it is/can be so impactful for our team and patients and how it can be used to grow confidence.
