Life Skills - Optimism

Welcome Back, Runyon!

This month in Life Skills, we are talking about OPTIMISM, focusing on the power of self-talk.

Ask you child about how self-talk can help them and try to model this at home. When you are needing to give yourself some positive affirmation, talk this through out loud. Show them that even though events can be frustrating, disappointing, or upsetting, we can try to focus our energy on the positive.
