 Our signature Parenting program 

​One of the best things we can do for our children is help them develop a greater sense of self-confidence and resilience. Building your child's skills in these areas can feel daunting. That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce a program for parents and kids to provide a backed-by-science series of handbooks on positivity, mindset and strengths. Each topic contributes to your ability to build resilience and enhance confidence. The series is designed for a shared experience so you'll both reap the reward​​s.

​We kick off the Constructing Confidence series with The Positivity Toolbox, based on the research of Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky. For this series, we have partnered with consultant Darri Stephens, MEd, learning experience designer, and former Common Sense Media Senior Director of Educational Content. Darri shares our passion for lifelong learning, and helping people achieve their full potential. Read more on how we each contribute to this key learning experience below.

The Positivity Toolbox

Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky identified 12 behaviors known to increase positivity.  She is also the lead researcher behind the happiness formula. Research shows that positivity is a critical component to developing a growth mindset, and that positive emotions serve a real purpose. Benefits include better problem solving and decision making… life skills needed to develop confidence and resilience. Many people hold the misguided belief that our levels of happiness are entirely linked to our personality and life circumstances. The happiness formula shows that we have more control over our happiness than we think. While 50% is tied to our personality only 10% is impacted by life circumstances leaving 40% totally in our control. The 12 behaviors and corresponding activities in the toolbox will help you and your child enhance positivity and ultimately the quality of your life.
