Whenever I ask my granddaughter how she’s doing in school, without hesitation she answers “fantastic. When I ask her how her brothers are doing, without hesitation, she answers “fantastic.” Most of the time she’s in a fantastic mood. Is she pretending? No she’s not. If you met my granddaughter you would feed off of her positive vibe. At an early age she’s phenomenal at re-framing the negatives into positives.

My granddaughter is eight years old.
