Being Self-Reliant

Sissy Slug and the Tuba – Being Self-Reliant (Activity – PDF)


Sissy Slug wanted to be like the snails, but she didn’t have a shell! She decided that if she could play the tuba, the snails might let her be their friend.

The tuba was so big and heavy, that Sissy became very strong carrying it around. But she grew strong on the inside too, and found out her best friend had been there the whole time.

About the Skill

Being Self-Reliant

Fostering self-reliance in children enhances several important areas of emotional wellbeing. Foremost, engaging in self-reliant behaviours helps children to develop a sense of their own identity, capabilities, and individual value and capacity. In turn, self-reliance aids the development of confidence, self-belief, and self-acceptance.
