Recently, I found a resource called Fishful Thinking (sponsored by Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, thus the name) that does a great job of teaching kids the skills they need to deal with set backs,  overcome challenges, and reach their full potential. Hint: it's all about a positive attitude.

I particularly liked the section on resilience - a trait that's so crucial to school and life success. In that section, there's a Silver Lining Game for kids that's awesome. What a great way for kids to learn that we all make mistakes -- it's what you learn from your mistakes that matters!

Highly recommend you check out the site if you're looking for a little help in getting your kids through the stressful times. Think you'll like the articles, activities, and videos they have to offer. Let me know what activities you like best.
