Positive Pages

In the article and video above, we talk about the importance of a positive attitude! But HOW can kids start to have a positive attitude? They can start with POSITIVE PAGES! This is a riff on the idea of a gratitude journal. But the idea is to train kids to see the positive side of things. 

Before bedtime they’re going to write down in a notebook or journal THREE good things about that day (They can write more than that, but they have to come up with at least three). For example…

  • I had fun with my friends.
  • Mom made my favorite dinner.
  • I figured out a homework problem that I was having trouble with.

(They don’t have to be big. It can be as simple as “I saw a butterfly on the way home from school). 


This is the perfect way to end the day and flip attitudes from negative to positive. 


Note: Are you feeling less than positive yourself? Try this for a few nights and see how much better you feel.
