By Tamar E. Chansky, Ph.D.
Children who exhibit negative thinking see only what they perceive as wrong with themselves, the world, and the future. They tend to supersize their problems, feeling that nothing works for them.
This negativity creates hurdles that often hinder children from achieving success and happiness now and in the future. This book analyzes the causes of children’s negativism and gives numerous strategies to help parents and their children manage negative thinking, build optimism, and establish emotional resilience.
Children can be buffered from disappointment, failure, and frustration by learning to think more accurately about their problems – to right-size them.
