My kids are very negative and it drives me batty. So I decided that as part of their handwriting practice, or L's journaling, I'd have them write about things they like.
I told M to pick one person a day, from our family, and write 3 things he liked about them. Today was my turn...
"I like mom because I love her and she loves me a lot and becaues she plays with me a lot."
Yesterday was dad's turn...
"I like dad becaues he is cool. And because I love him. And because he plays with me a lot."
I can't wait to see what he says about his siblings, hehe.
