School Historian

My sweet Lia ran for school Historian this last week. She was so excited to get involved in school government.

She made posters.

She practiced her speech.

She picked out the perfect outfit.

And she lost.

And she’s okay with it.

She told me she was happy she ran, and definitely a bit sad she lost. But most of all she was glad to experience losing and realizing she was okay with that. Really, she said that. I promise I did not pay her.

I am so proud of her and her amazing resilience. I hope declarations, daily talks about choosing happiness, and activities like our Victory Wall have helped Lia develop resilience and self-confidence. And to be honest, I couldn’t be more proud of how she dealt with her loss.

How have you helped your children deal with loss and disappointment?
