Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Some children seem to have radar tuned in to what is wrong in any given situation. No matter how much is right, they have a way of noticing and commenting on every little problem, no matter how small or inconsequential.

Parenting a child who zooms in on problems, a child who often has a negative view, is hard work. If you are the parent of a child who "grumbles too much," you are probably nodding your head in agreement. You want your child to be happy, and you have probably worn yourself out trying to make that happen. You have bought the latest toys, waited in amusement park lines, laughed at marginally funny jokes. You have hosted play dates, lost at Go Fish, cooked endless bowls of macaroni and cheese, and repeatedly gone above and beyond the call of duty for the sake of your child. And your child probably has been happy. Children who tend toward the negative are actually often happy, as long as everything is going well. And therein lies the catch, because in real life, there are glitches. One of the rides at the amusement park is out of commission, you forget to pick up the blueberry yogurt, a school friend chooses to sit with someone else. And that's when the grumbling (and worse) begins. In the life of a child whose thinking quickly turns negative, a small mishap can shatter an afternoon. Children who tend toward negativity are masters at noticing problems. It's as if deviations, imperfections, and injustices jump out at them, magnified a hundred fold. They feel compelled to point out what is wrong or unfair. These children are experts at making mountains out of molehills, and typically grow increasingly angry when attempts are made to talk them out of their point of view. ... Now the goal, as you know, is not simply to end the grumbling. Children whose thinking quickly turns negative are good at fuming in silence, too. The goal is to teach these children about negativity and to motivate them to do something about it. The goal is also to help them become more resilient in the face of disappointment and to provide them with the skills they need to focus on the positive rather than staying mired in the negative.
