Introduction:

Everyone nowadays faces enormous pressures of varying kinds. Our kids are burdened by academic and social pressures. It makes them susceptible to depression, stress and a pessimistic outlook. The good news is that you can build and motivate your child to be optimistic. This leads to better academic and extracurricular performance and overall well-being. An optimistic attitude enables your child to keep trying even when things are tough. Here are some of the ways to nurture optimism in your child.

4 Ways to Build Positive Character Traits in Children

Appreciate The Effort

Your child can embrace optimism when he or she doesn’t have to depend on external factors for happiness. When your child sees that you appreciate the effort more than the result, he or she feels happy from within. There will be times when your child will score low even after putting in a lot of effort, or lose a match that they practiced a lot for. In such times, what matters is how you react. Magnify your child’s effort and praise him or her for trying. The world is there to praise the results.

Be A Model Of Optimism

Your child learns more from observing you than from your words. Share your enthusiasm about an important meeting or a tough sales pitch, and show your child that positivity helps one remain calm. As a family, spend time together. Share the best and worst moments of the day for every member. Discuss why they were the best and worst moments and focus on the positive. This helps your child understand the value of being positive and optimistic.

Allow Your Child To Prove His Or Her Worth

Kids usually love to show what they can do. When you provide your child with opportunities, you allow them to prove their worth. This means a lot to your child as they feel able. Encourage your child to complete certain age-appropriate tasks. For instance, ask your little one to put toys in the designated place after playing with them. Motivate your child to help with sorting out laundry or setting the table for a meal. Once your child completes the tasks, praise them for doing a good job. Show them the importance of the job they do. Give them confidence and fuel their desire to repeat the ‘good job’ and take on additional tasks.

Engage in Acts of Kindness

Kind people have lower stress and elevated levels of mental health and awareness. When you encourage your child to be kind and giving, he or she feels happier and optimistic. Your child’s brain instantly feels energized and this reduces anxiety, stress, and other negative feelings. Help your child feel more energetic, less resentful, more forgiving, and upbeat with random acts of kindness.

In Conclusion:

There are many other ways to motivate your child towards optimism. There’s good in every bad. We can learn from every mistake. These are some of the affirmations that you can teach your child. Moreover, motivate your children to be good about themselves. It is only when your child is emotionally nurtured that he or she can embrace optimism.

Here’s the reason Why Emotionally Strong Children Grow into Happier Adults
