When we develop an attitude of gratitude, we helpnour kids look at situations from a positive perspective, clebrating the present, and building stronger connections with our loved ones. Keep a positive mindset, a hopeful heart, and shine a light on all the things we have to be grateful for. What's something your grateful for this holiday season?
The a “Right Now I Feel” emotions and feelings chart resource helps kids identify and name what they’re feeling inside. Two versions of the poster are available, one for younger children with simple, recognizable emotions, and one for older children with more nuanced emotions, such as “confident” and “grateful.” A fun and educational resource for healthy emotional development.
How do we help our children develop the ability to focus and be present in the moment? Create a "sit spot" for your child. A "sit spot" is a spot where they can sit and observe. Give them a journal and pencils and have them draw pictures of what they see or think about. Explain that when we're always so busy doing something or talking, we miss those things they've just noticed. As your child practices sitting on their sit spot, they will get better at paying attention and focusing.
Helping teens balance sceen time. Does your child or teen need a social media detox?

Encourage your teen to keep track of the time they spend online.
