—Oscar Wilde

  • Three easy ways to promote confidence and optimism in your children
  • Practice positive thinking about the future using the “best possible future self” exercise: Have each of your children articulate what their best possible future would look like in either one, five, OR ten years. How do they feel? Where do they live? What do they do? etc.
