FREE Parenting Symposium

I found a new parenting website that is sponsored by Pepperidge Farms Goldfish called Fishful Thinking.

The Goldfish brand has believed in the power of a little smile for over forty years and is committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle to make a difference in children's lives. Goldfish crackers are made with real ingredients, without artificial preservatives and were the first major cracker brand to eliminate trans fat. Now Goldfish wants to play a part in helping children reach their full potential and become the successes they were born to be. The new Fishful Thinking program offers parents and teachers information about optimism and its importance in childhood development. Optimism is defined as the skill of seeing the positive aspects of a situation — the belief that things can change for the better and that one can control the direction of one's own life. Optimism is a teachable skill that all children can learn and benefit from regardless of their circumstances. The Goldfish brand is committed to spreading the optimism message to children through their parents and teachers to help them meet the challenges of growing up in today's world.

Goldfish created this website to connect parents and teachers with information about optimism and children. It includes downloadable articles, such as "Optimism: A Key Ingredient in Happiness," as well as easy-to-follow tips, fun activities and games that can be used every day including the "Happiness Scavenger Hunt," "Emotion Charades" and "Silver Lining Games." Many of the activities and games can be adapted to children's ages. The content on the Web site will be refreshed regularly with additional exercises, articles and relevant information for building and maintaining optimism in children.

Attend an exclusive FREE one day Parenting for Possibilities Workshop with Dr. Karen Reivich to further develop and learn tips for raising happy, resilient kids.
