All Things EQ Message (from the founder Danna Evans):

The motto next week is:

I know what I am looking forward to today.


What are you looking forward to today?


This motto seems simple enough, but when we take a moment to think about it, we may realize that we don't have an answer. The difference between getting through our days vs. enjoying them is significant. Every parent hopes their child can enjoy most of the opportunities they have and enjoy the days of their lives.


When we ask students what they enjoy most about school, the initial answers are recess, lunch, or the end of the day. If you think about it, that answer is equivalent to the adult version of TGIF. Yes, we look forward to Friday. But what if we also enjoyed Monday? Isn't that something we want for our children? This week, help your child develop a habit of optimism by asking them what they are planning on enjoying in school today. Optimism is important because it is a foundational skill. If we don't believe things can get better, we are less likely to try again when we stumble.


"Optimism is essential for achievement,

and it is also the foundation for courage and true progress."

-Nicholas M. Butler


As parents, we can certainly help our children develop a more optimistic outlook. One way to start is by putting a sticky note with the word KNOW on it in your car or somewhere where you will see it each morning before your children leave for school. The sticky note will serve as a reminder for you to ask your child what they know they are looking forward to today.


Encourage your child to have more than one answer to that question because the more responses they have, the more they will enjoy their day.
