Can I make my child more optimistic?

Can you make your child more optimistic? Optimism, or the conviction that things will work out in the end, is a cornerstone of resilience, and an asset in achieving any kind of success. Research shows that optimists, who believe they can achieve success, are in fact more able to do so. They are less likely to get depressed, get fewer illnesses, have longer relationships, and live longer.

The bottom line is this: even if you are born with a tendency to pessimism, you can greatly increase your optimism quotient.”
