September 13: Positive Thinking Day

image from

It can be easy for children – and adults – to get bogged down by all that is going in wrong. Use today as a day for celebrating all that is going right. What are kids thankful for in their lives? What are they good at doing? Who are the important people in their lives who make a difference?

You can also make this into a day of compliments. Challenge kids to think of nice things to say about each other. You could even start a tradition. In a circle time or gathering, pick one child. Go around the group and ask each child to share one thing they like about that child. You may wish to write down what the kids say and send it home with the child.
