Fishful Thinking and a Gift Card Giveaway

I have plunged into the Fishful Thinking campaign.  The belief behind Fishful Thinking is an idea all parents should digest.   


From the Fishful Thinking Campaign:


All parents want their kids to be happy and successful. Kids should have the chance to achieve whatever they want in life. Unfortunately, only 42% of kids believe that they will be able to achieve their goals.  The Goldfish® brand cares about kids and wants to help inspire them to become the successes they were born to be. Through the Fishful ThinkingSM program, Goldfish provides parents with tools to help teach their kids how to navigate obstacles, overcome failure and achieve what they want.

The Fishful Thinking program provides the tools parents need to teach their kids how to think optimistically about themselves and how to use their Optimism to overcome life’s obstacles, persist in the face of adversity, and transform setbacks into manageable challenges. By teaching kids Optimism today, we are equipping them with the skills and strategies they can rely on to shine in the face of adversity for the rest of their lives.


As parents raising two young girls, my husband and I strive to teach our children to believe in themselves and anything is possible.  We lead by example by keeping a positive attitude on life and being highly driven while remaining optimistic.  As well as modeling an optimistic outlook, we also give our girls the tools to help them through life’s little challenges.  For myself, whether it’s training for races, dreaming to be a published writer or organizing a drama free mommy group, I believe I have modeled to my girls that no dream is too big or small and your life is blessed when you believe you are worthy of it.  


Fishful Thinking supports my parenting philosophy and my approach to life.  If your  parenting approach is full of Fishful Thinking or you need add more Fishful Thinking into your parenting style, then I encourage you to visit the site and join the campaign with me.


Fortunately, the Fishful Thinking representatives also felt I fit with their philosophy and I have been graced me with a $25 gift card to Macy’s to give to one of my Fishful Thinking Followers! 🙂

  1. Hi! I love the positive frustration activity. My son is 22 months and hardly speaking so he gets very frustrated!

    I just retweeted, too. I wish I could sign up to be a fishful ambassador but my son is too young!

  2. what a great program. kids do need to learn self-confidence and be prepared to ‘stand on their own feet’ when they get older. you are definitely setting a great example for your girls! fun, hardcore, and sassy 🙂

  3. “Only 42% of kids believe that they will be able to achieve their goals.”
    That’s a sad fact.

  4. “The Goldfish brand has been bringing smiles to kids for over forty years”

    I’m a big fan of Goldfish. Our son has allergies and this is one of his favorite “safe” foods.

    Great campaign on their part.

  5. I like how they give parents the tools to give their kids confidence and self-esteem. I learned they have a book club and activities to do with your kids.

  6. I learned that Hope is critical for the pursuit of valued goals, such as succeeding in school and staying healthy. Children who have high hope have focused energy that is used to pursue goals along selected routes.

  7. I liked their segment on Emotion Awareness Activities. My making your child aware of his own emotions, he’s better able to understand and accept the emotions of others.

    I love the feeling collage idea. My daughter loves to make collages out of old magazines I save and incorporating a “feeling” theme would be a great project for her and I to do together.

  8. I learned that children need to feel disappointment at some point, bear it and move on for healthy mental illness. thanks for the chance.

  9. Goldfish Crackers come in Multipacks I never knew that. skyxsky27(at)

  10. I love that they provides parents with tools to help teach their kids how to navigate obstacles, overcome failure and achieve what they want. This is soooooooo neat. Thanks for the chance.
