Resilience: a Boot Camp for your kids
Module 3: Positivity
Parent/ Caregiver notes and tips.
Welcome to your 3rd Module.
We hope that you and your child enjoy it.
Please get in touch if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, we'd love to hear from you.
purpose of the module
There is a ton of research that points to a POSITIVE outlook having huge life benefits. For our purposes, research also shows that POSITIVITY is an essential part of being RESILIENT.
This module teaches your child a technique that helps them to develop their POSITIVITY and avoid falling into the 3 P's trap.
what to expect
In this activity your child will learn and apply a technique that helps them to train their brain to do the OPPOSITE of the 3 P's. We teach them:
We aren't trying to trivialise or make light of difficult situations. Instead, by following this methodology your child will learn to be able to create some emotional space around events that don't always go to plan, with practice they will begin to see them as learning opportunities.
So, listen out for the 3 P's and when you hear them, tell your child to do their 123.

7 DAY CHALLENGE:
what to expect
The purpose of the challenge is to help your child to build a positivity circuit.
Your 'reality' becomes what you pay attention to, and this helps train their brain to actually notice positive things when they happen.
Just ask them 1 simple question as you are putting them to bed each night.
What about today was good or positive?
Why not join in? It's a nice way to build your positivity circuit and share your day with your kid.
Ok, that's it.
Without further ado... it's time to start the 3rd module.
