I am a hat.
I am worn out here and there. I have a few holes, and even a few weeds sticking out.
But I am still very much a hat. A very happy hat.
I have lots of stories to tell.
A Happy Hat is a sweet and upbeat tale of resilience, optimism, and hope. The life story of a hat — a very happy hat — and its various owners illustrates how dealing with disappointments and stressful situations is crucial to one's well-being.
A Note to Parents written by psychologist Mary Lamia, PhD, discusses the importance of helping your child recover from adversity and encouraging a hopeful attitude. Additional tips and strategies from APA's "Resilience Guide for Parents & Teachers" are also included.
