          2. Print our 25 Instant Family Positivity Boosters poster (in our Positivity & Connection Kit) and put it somewhere everyone can see. When a negative mood is lingering, ask children which activity they would like to do. Doing something fun for a few minutes can transform the mood!

          3. Use strategies from the 7 Powerful Ways to Respond When Your Child Complains (in our Positivity & Connection Kit) to help children express their dissatisfaction in healthier, more positive ways.

          5. Use the phrases from the 50 Powerful Ways to Wish Good Day to Your Child printable (in our Positivity & Connection Kit) as alternatives to "Have a great day!" Your child will feel inspired, encouraged, and loved.
