Listen to Karen Harris talk about self-reinforcement (time: 0:20).
It’s quite common to use self-instructions for self-reinforcement, so you can use self-statements. In that case, they’re not really self-instructions anymore. They’re statements, so quite a lot of the self-reinforcement that children and adults give themselves is verbal. With young children, it will quite often be out loud: “I got it. I did it. I like this. I’m doing good,” that kind of thing.
