Be Sillier Than Your Kid (and 4 More Tips for Staying Positive)!

Admit it, Mom, you long to be silly. To meet your child at his level, and let him bring out the child in you. What a great way to express your in-the-moment, trusting, powerful self. The part of you that says YES to life – challenges and all. Sure, we have feelings. Just don’t make decisions based upon them. Feelings are like gas in babies – we need to express them and then let them go.

Modeling this positive attitude for your child is the greatest gift you can give him. It shows him that no matter what happens, he can be strong; he can trust himself. And, he can trust you. Here are three more tips for keeping positive!

  • Internalize the importance of having a good attitude. 
  • Know that you are your child’s greatest teacher.
  • Trust your intuition.
  • Share your feelings when you need to.
