Parenting Gift: 6 Ways for Raising a Positive Child

You Can Raise "CAN DO" Kids

A resilient child gives joy to parents. She bounces back from disappointments and faces life with a special eagerness. She's willing to take on challenges and try new things. The, ‘Let me try,’ and ‘Can Do’ attitude make being with her so much fun.

Such children don’t happen by accident. You can do a lot to encourage your child's positive attitudes. Research tells us there are 6 goals that can help you in your parent/child day-to-day interactions.

This Parenting Communication Tip Helps Kids Regulate Emotions

Here is how to develop the 1st of 6 goals:

Talk with your child well after the tantrums, pouts, or moans and groans have passed. Then ask:

1. How do you feel about how you handled your disappointment?

2. Would you like to handle difficulties better?

3. How would you like to solve them better? (The best solutions come from your child because she is more likely to follow her own ideas. You can help her if she's stumped but don't force your suggestions.)

4. Listen well and paraphrase her answers.

5. Ask her to pick the idea she’d like to practice.

6. Compliment her every time she practices it.

Parenting Video – 5 Ways to Promote Resilience in Children

You Can Raise a Resilient Thinker!

CHILDREN WHO WHINE, BLAME, AND WALLOW IN SELF-PITY CAN LEARN TO bounce back from difficulties. This brief video offers 5 ways to inspire your child to become resilient.

One of the ways is to avoid telling your child exactly how to do something. Telling undermines his problem solving abilities and makes him dependent on what you think. What’s the better way?

Research tells us to ask “How Questions?” "How Questions" boost thinking power. Some examples include:

1. How would you like to solve it?

2. How many solutions can you come up with?

3. How could you handle it better?

There are as many ways to ask “How Questions” as there are problem solving situations.

To motivate your child and strengthen resilience, watch the video together by clicking on: How Parents Can Raise Resilient Children or watch it here:
