From the bestselling author of Authentic Happiness

In The Optimistic Child, Dr. Martin Seligman offers parents, teachers and coaches a well-validated program to prevent depression in children. Seligman shows adults how to teach children the skills of optimism that can help them combat sadness, achieve more on the playing field and at school and improve their physical health.

Learning the skills of optimism not only reduces the risk of depression but boosts school performance and provides children with the self-reliance they need as they approach the teenage years and beyond.

Filled with practical advice and written in clear, helpful language, this book is an invaluable resource for people who want to open up the world for children.
