Of course we want our kids to think more positively. Not only do we know the reasons that positive thinking is better for us, but let’s be honest, hearing constant negativity can be draining!

In this episode, you will learn:
- Why certain kids are more resistant to thinking more positively
- How to respond effectively to their negativity
- How to foster more resilience so you don’t have to address it so often in the moment.
