Some easy ways to share:
Blow off a bad day Explain, "My boss was crabby. I'm going to 'shake it off.'" (Tell her what that phrase means, and even imitate a duck shaking water off its back for some laughs, suggests Harris.)
Talk about job satisfaction "I was happy today because I know I helped people."
Explain how you tackle challenges For instance, say, "I've got a speech to make and I'm a little scared, so I'm going to practice." (Older kids can make the connection between practice and performance.)
Invite some input Say, "I need to come up with some ideas for a project: How can I start?" Your child will be excited to help.
Celebrate triumphs Say, "I just got a promotion because I've been trying so hard. Let's do something fun!"
