Arguing is Good! Life tips from Summer Camp


A resource from Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp in Ohio

Helping kids believe positive truth is exactly what summer camp is designed for! However, as a parent, it is hard to maintain that positivity with my own kids year round. Here is a cool tip from an article I read that can help. Thank you Huffington Post.

Arguments are wonderful things! -- As long as we're arguing with ourselves. All of us get stuck in unhealthy "thought holes" sometimes. As adults, we know it is important to find our way back to positive mindsets quickly, so we can believe the best about others and about ourselves.

As kids, overcoming negative thoughts can be pretty challenging. But, learning to argue with our own negative thinking is a strategy we can share with our children to help them embrace their potential.

Our kids have amazing potential! Sometimes, they just need a reminder. Check out the "3 Cs" (Check, Collect, Challenge) at the end of this article for three action steps that will help our kids (and help us) fight negative thoughts.
