Help children to become more positive through reading and conversing on the topic. One of my favorite things to do when I was in the classroom was to have the kids close their eyes and think about a beautiful thought. It can be anything that makes them feel good. Finding a place of beauty often helps us to feel more positive. Kids can keep the thought private or share out. Try it now yourself. Close your eyes and think of a beautiful thought.
