I sat by Thing1 while he played his DS the other day and told him to practice having a good attitude even when he "died" and got the "Game Over" message.
After a few good rounds, he started relapsing then caught himself and exhaled loudly.
He immediately looked up and forced a smile. "All I did was blow out air."
We'll keep working on this.
Good attitude practice can be found anywhere...even in a video game.
