Recently, I wrote a book called, The Fun Thieves on the topic of PERSPECTIVE. This is such an important thing to teach our kids. I strongly feel that if we want our children to be able to be happy, then we will need to help nurture positive thinking skills! We definitely don't have the power to keep bad situations from happening around us but we DO have the power to shape our attitudes. It is vital that we teach our children to LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE and find THE SILVER LININGS in difficult situations. I created this list of books that I feel are wonderful tools to help teach the lesson of perspective and I hope you will check it out!
Here is another list I found on the website I created my recommendations through that I thought was also helpful on problem solving.
