5. Help Them Look for the Silver Lining
Bad things happen every day even to good people. However, you can help your child be more optimistic by looking for the highlights, even when there doesn’t seem to be much to be happy about. If they made a mistake, help them figure out what they can learn from it and do better next time. If it’s a life event or larger tragedy, show them that these events are a part of life, but that it moves on.
