Word of the Month – October – Optimism

In October we will be working on the character lesson: OPTIMISM.

Optimism - the power of positive thinking with Storm Family Martial Arts Leadership & Life Skills Academy.

Studies have shown that very young children adopt the optimistic and pessimistic patterns of thought that they observe. One key difference is how optimists and pessimists see failure.  Optimism has many benefits for mental health, including protection from depression and anxiety. It also increases the likelihood of effective problem solving.

Here is a guideline regarding children and optimism based on age:

  • With children ages 3 and 4; they are learning the feeling of being important. Teach them how to have a sense of purpose in what they do.

  • With children ages 5 and 6; they are learning what being positive means. Teach them how to think positively.

  • With children ages 7 to 9; they are learning the value of friendship. Teach them how to support their friends and family by being optimistic.

  • With children ages 10 and up; they are learning the power of goal setting. Teach them how to have optimism about today and the future.

The benefits of optimism have been proven many times. Children that have optimism have a healthier outlook on life and experience less stress than pessimists. We can teach children how to build and grow upon the skill of optimism.

The homework for our junior students this month will be to practice optimism at home. If you parents ask you to help out with chores, then ensure you look for the good in helping out rather than being upset or angry.
