Make family time more joyful with stories

04 April 2016

Make family time more joyful with stories – using positive psychology to teach happiness to children.

“Knowing how to explain to your young child why it’s not okay to fight with their sibling can be a tough one. Made even harder when any explanation you provide is followed by the well known utterance “but why?”, which can inevitably lead to a frustrated “because I said so!”

Don’t worry, help is at hand! “How Full is Your Bucket?’ is a child friendly story that explains why we should be kind to each other. Also available is, “Have you filled your bucket today?” written by Carol McCloud renowned author in the field in how to introduce positive psychology to children. This story is used in Key Stage 1 at BVIS to help teach kindness.

Why not try sharing this book together and see how full you can make each other’s buckets, filling family time with joy.
