Be a Role Model

Evaluate your attitude and change it from negative to positive. As soon as your children will see the change in your attitude, you will experience an immediate change in their attitude also.

Sometimes children go through hard times and their attitude changes. It is possible that any of your child’s experience has made him have a negative thinker. Analyze this and help your child come out of the effects of the situation or issue. You can either find out by talking to your child or ask his best friend to learn about the facts.

Avoid Giving Negative Labels to Your Child

Remember children become the person you call them often. If you give your child a negative label it is possible that he eventually takes on the role permanently.

Avoid Criticism

Always keep in mind that criticizing will not make your child work hard and achieve success. Try and help your child when he is struggling or is stuck and appreciate his effort. Let him understand that all types of experiences are important in life.

Explain Importance of Being Positive Yet Realistic

Life gives us both positive as well as negative situations. Ensure that you convey the right message to your child. Let him know that disappointments are part of life and it is not always possible to attain every goal in life.

Boost Your Child’s Self Esteem

Positive attitude is directly proportional to high self esteem. Give your child opportunities and praise their efforts and work done as well. You should start this as early as possible. If you praise them when they really deserve, it will go a long way and will help create an optimistic attitude.

Focus on Gifts and Strengths of Your Child

Everyone has gifts and strengths. Focus on the bright side of your child’s behaviour. No matter whether your child is an extrovert or an introvert, he must possess some strong skills. Find that out and support him as he develops them.

So, if you teach your child to lead a positive life he will be healthier, happier and lead a long life as well. Encourage your child to participate in age appropriate activities. This will help develop a sense of accomplishment. Help them handle situations with ease and accept failures also.
