Have you heard of Fishful Thinking? Well, I hadn't either, until I was over at Tiffany's blog, One Woman's Rants and Raves, where she is blogging about Fishful Thinking because she has been chosen to be part of their faculty (she's so excited she is giving away 2, $100 Gift Cards to Target...you know how I love me some Target!!!).
In a small nutshell, because I need to dive more into their website and learn more, Fishful Thinking is an intiative through Pepperridge Farms that offers tools to parents for fostering optimism in kids.
How many of us know kids today that don't feel as if they make a difference; feel that they can't set worthy goals and keep them; and kids who just feel as if there is no place in this world for them?
First of all, what a sad and difficult feeling to have on such tiny shoulders. When did kids stop being kids and believing that anything is possible in the future? Have we advocated kids to grow up to fast and face the realities of life before they even get to a place in life that they can successfully handle it?
I pray not, but I fear it is true.
Let's give our kids back the sense of optimism that we had growing up! They can conquer the world! They can be anything or do anything when they grow up!!!
