Topic: Complaining

Help kids turn complaints around and see the positive.

How do we help kids focus on the positive? This is what I did one Sunday.

I put 10 common complaints of kids onto slips of paper and then put them on the side of 10 buckets. Kids then got 3 Popsicle sticks to use to vote. They put a Popsicle stick in the top three buckets they complain about the most. Then we totaled them to discover the top complaints.

How did I use this information to 'flip' their complaints? Log in to find out!
