Title: How to Raise a Child With PMA - Positive Mental Attitude

Category: Positive Parenting

     Is it important whether or not we raise children to be optimists or pessimists?  Sure it is!  And it makes a difference.  Our children's ultimate attitude toward life depends to a large extent on the attitude displayed in the home.  Mothers, the chief caregivers, have the greatest role in the early years in leading their child toward optimism.  Why do we want our child to have a positive mental attitude?  Because a positive mental attitude will lead to a happier child, a child more likely to achieve success in school and in life, a child who can get along better with other people and even a healthier child.
