The Power of Positive Thinking by The Broward Tutor

Do you realize that parents are the ones that have the most influence on their children?  It’s parents that can change the way their children see themselves.

Teach your kids to overcome their fears and doubts by using the power of positive thinking. This is a skill that will last a lifetime, and by modeling it yourself, you will surely feel its undeniable potential!

Focus your attention on only your positive thoughts in a particular situation. Completely dismiss the negative thoughts in your head. A great time to give this a whirl is when your son or daughter is really aggravating you. Try putting this in
a thought bubble over your head, ‘Positive thoughts + positive words = positive outcomes.’ You should now be noticing only your child’s unique and special qualities. Let me know how this works for you!

Encourage your children to try these techniques. If your child has made a mistake or misjudgment, teach them to focus on what went right about the situation. How did their skills, talents, and know-how help them? How will they use this information to make better choices? Going through this process will give your child a big shot of self confidence!

In 2013, remember to share with your child all the positive traits you notice as homework and chores get completed. Positive reinforcement is the way to go! The more capable and empowered your child feels, the more he or she will strive for personal growth and improvement.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2013!

    What a worthwhile subject! I think we as parents sometimes discount the power of our words, for good or
    bad. We forget what a boost a “great job” or “way to go” can be, and maybe we do not take the
    negative impact of words as seriously as we should.
    I always enjoy your blogs; I find them to be informative and interesting. Keep up the good work.

  • Thanks for your comment, Arleen. A positive self image is so important, not only for children, but for adults as well. If you like yourself, you radiate self-assurance and good energy. We all tend to gravitate toward happy people!

  • I’m going to tell my little brother that he should also go to see your blog
    on a regular basis to get updated about the hottest information.
