Positive Mindset

Having a positive mindset is essential for everyday life. Positive thinking, or an

optimistic attitude, is the practice of focusing on only the good in any given situation.

It can have a big impact on your physical, emotional and mental health. Having a

positive mindset simply means you can approach the good and the bad in life with the

expectation that things will go well. Positive thinking can have many benefits for

example helping with stress management and health improvement. Mindsets can

come from our world around us such as our family especially African American

families. Having both parents in the home is essential to a positive mindset. It's

important to have a father figure in the home. Children want to make their fathers

proud, and an involved father promotes inner growth, strength, happiness and a

positive mindset. Studies have shown that when fathers are affectionate, supportive

and active in a child's life, it greatly affects a child's cognitive and social development.

It also instills an overall sense of well-being and self-confidence. High levels of

father involvement are correlated with higher levels of sociability, confidence, and

self-control in children. Children with involved fathers are less likely to act out in

school or engage in risky behaviors in adolescence. There's a very pervasive myth

going on in the world about black fathers: that they're more often than not absent from

their children's lives. 71.5 percent of black dads are absent from their homes but rather

that many of them are simply unmarried. When black fathers do live with their

children, they're likely to be involved in their kids; everyday lives. CDC data shows

that black fathers are more likely than their white and Hispanic counterparts to feed,

eat with, bathe, diaper, dress, play with, and read to their children on a daily basis. In

some households in America there are single mothers. According to 2020 U.S. Census

Bureau, 4 out of about 11 million single parent families with children under the age of

18, 80 percent were headed by single mothers. Of all single-parent families in the

U.S., single mothers make up the majority. About 4 out 10 children were born to

unwed mothers. When it comes to black families, social media is a big influence in

the image of black families. Many Black social media users find social platforms

personally important and effective for helping the world see a positive black image.

Roughly a quarter (23%) of adult social media users in the United States – and 17% of

adults overall – say they have changed their views about social issues of the black

family because of something they saw on social media in the past year, according to a

July Pew Research Center survey. Social media is a huge part of how society views

things now. If black creators continue to use social platforms to help show the positive

black image. This percentage can go up. Social media is a huge part of the black

image.
