It isn’t always so easy, especially if we ourselves are prone to pessimism. In this ‘Maggie Moment’, Maggie talks about how to raise optimistic kids – when so often we can tend towards doom and drama.
Maggie points out that optimism is something our children learn from us, but can also be developed by helping children learn to be autonomous. She also discusses why helping children find their spark may just help them be optimistic, resilient beings for life.
Maggie writes extensively about resilience in her book “Real Kids in An Unreal World”, now available in print or as an eBook.
