I Can't Control Anyone Else But I Can Control Myself Poster

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Many variables in life are beyond an individual's control, such as other people's actions or unexpected events like illnesses or accidents. However, there are aspects of life that one has more control over, such as behaviors, reactions, thoughts, and goals.

The I Can't Control Anyone Else But I Can Control Myself Poster lists ten areas that clients can focus on to help shape their own destinies. It can be displayed in different environments, such as classrooms, homes, and calm-down corners.

Controlling oneself instead of others promotes mutual respect in relationships, reduces stress, and promotes personal growth. Caring adults can support this effort in kids and teens by allowing them to set goals and solve problems independently. As additional resources, we recommend checking out our Circle of Control for Kids Handout or Circle of Control Worksheets.
