They also teach online youth courses to help youth and children to understand their own greatness and be able to stand up and make a difference for good in the world, and teach live training courses to teachers, parents and youth and do personal coaching.
In this episode, the Bowlers and I discuss the importance of seeing our children's genius. So often as parents, we see their weaknesses or struggles. The dirty socks on the floor, the disrespectful attitude or the lack of motivation. When we focus on these negative things, it's more difficult to help our children to overcome them. But when we focus on the positive, powerful changes can start to happen.
A simple tool that Kent and Amy teach is to write down 1 positive thing that you see your child do every day. You could write this in a journal or a phone app. But the key is to reflect on their actions from the day and find at least one good thing they have done. It could be as simple as a smile for a younger sibling, a thank you to a parent or as profound as completing a difficult assignment or stopping a bad habit. The act of pondering the positive will focus your mind on the good and soon, you'll be seeing more and more of the good that is within them. They call this the Proof Positive Journal.
