Episode 227

Sometimes, even when our kids appear to be having fun, they still tell us about the negative things they’ve experienced – at a birthday party, the ice cream flavor was wrong; at a soccer game they won, the coach didn’t compliment them enough. It can be frustrating and worrisome when our kids always focus on things that don’t go well. Not only is it difficult to be around now, but we may also fear that if that’s how they view life, they will always be unhappy.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why people with big emotions tend to notice the negative first
  • What to do instead of forcing kids to see the “bright side”
  • How the Long Game Method can help kids think more flexibly and see situations differently
