If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love.
One simple way to create happier and more connected families (and schools) is to remember to smile!
In my book, Happy Campers, I share this “One Simple Thing” tip in Camp Secret #3: Positive Practices Produce Optimistic Kids:
Start by giving your kids a smile at these times, every day:
• When you greet them in the morning to start the day.
• When you greet them after school or after not seeing them for awhile.
• During at least one conversation, when you’re looking at them in the eyes.
• At bedtime, as you tuck them in to say goodnight.
Four smiles, just for your kids, that will help them smile on the inside.
