Moods: Helping Girls Build Optimism


Have you ever noticed sometimes our little girls, maybe our tween or teen girls, even us as adult women can get stuck in moods sometimes?

In this month’s ‘Maggie Moment’, Maggie offers some examples of how we can help our little girls make sense of tricky moods, and find ways out of them so they can build positive neural pathways in their brains that ultimately help them feel happier, healthier, and more optimistic.

Maggie draws on the work of Dr. Martin Seligman’s book: The Optimistic Child: A Proven Program to Safeguard Children Against Depression and Build Lifelong Resilience and shares 3 things that make it harder to be optimistic, and how ruminating thoughts can be more common in girls.
