Puzzled by How to Fight the Blues?

By October 31, 2016Blogs

Have you ever thought your child seems sad, depressed, anxious, worried, or unmotivated? Although you may often need to confirm your child’s emotions, it’s not as easy as saying, “don’t worry be happy” or “stop being worried”. Reassurances may not always work; but, engaging your child in small pleasurable activities can change their negative thoughts, behaviors, and emotions, promoting a different style of thinking.

Positive thinking is a very important tool you can practice with your child. A rainy day that appears to be negative can turn into a positive experience. Walking in the rain with a nice umbrella or a colorful rain jacket can change the way we think about it. But, if going outside isn’t possible, staying inside and enjoying something as simple as completing puzzles are also ways to change negatives into a positives.
Below you will find two puzzles created to help your child to turn negative statements into positive ones. At the least, it gives them something else to think about that can make them feel better.
