talents and experience less anxiety.

experiences instead of focusing on negative.
* They will have an increased chance of learning
adequate motivational strategies and applying them in the
classroom and their daily lives.
* They will develop a more positive outlook on life.

media has on our society, e.g. television, video games
* They will learn how to set goals for themselves and
strive to achieve them!
