Download: Lunchbox Notes to Help Your Child Build Confidence (View / Download)
For kids with learning and attention issues, school can be a stressful place. While you can’t always be there to cheer your child on, a little note in his lunchbox can go a long way. A lunchbox note can help him build confidence to make it through the day.
We asked our community and Understood team members to share what they say in lunchbox notes to their kids. Some send song lyrics and silly jokes. Some share notes that let their child know they’re thinking about him. And some send notes in picture form, which can be helpful for kids with reading issues like dyslexia.
One team member shared that she used to get lunchbox notes that had special meaning only to her family. For example, her mother used to send notes that said, “Be the duck.” This meant, “When a bully says mean things to you, let it just roll off your back, like water off a duck.”
Print these lunchbox notes and choose the ones you want to put in your child’s lunchbox whenever you want to make him smile, let him know you’re thinking about him, or give his confidence a boost. There are blank ones, too, so you can create notes based on your own family’s jokes, sayings and traditions.
