Product Description
Inspired by the article, "How to Stop Automatic Negative Thoughts" by Renee Jain (https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/how-to-stop-automatic-negative-thoughts_us_58330f18e4b0eaa5f14d4833).

Use this article, or create a mini-lesson/discussion to help students create healthy, realistic critical thinking patterns. For example, rather than thinking "The teacher wants to talk to me, so I must be in trouble!", the student would learn to analyze the situation and consider the facts (I have mostly good grades, I haven't done anything wrong, the teacher didn't seem upset) and have healthier emotional and psychological responses to to life situations.

Parents could use this to help their child(ren) develop healthy thought patterns.

Introduces interesting perspective that differentiates between 'positive thinking (Everything will be okay!) and fatalistic negative thinking (I'm going to fail!) to more accurate, realistic thinking (I didn't study so I may not do well on the test, but I CAN study harder next time. I am not doomed to fail and should not give up).

Good reminders for us adults, as well!

Contains answer key with notes. Recommend for advanced middle school or regular high school. Could be adapted for special needs or younger children.
