If your child turned to you and said they felt lost you would help find them? If they said they looked ugly you would tell them they are the most beautiful person in the whole world. If they said that they are stupid you would tell them that is not true. You would tell them they have a beautiful mind and can do anything they want to. When they say they can’t, you will say “No you can’t right now, but you will do it if you put your mind to it and believe in yourself!”
You see, we are the first to tell our children.
Maybe, just maybe if we spent a little more time telling ourselves we wouldn’t have to tell them 🤷🏼♀ our children are a reflection of us, the parents!!! Invest in yourself, believe in your abilities. Believe in yourself! Your raising the future, your raising your grandchildren they are just not born yet!
I believe that we are a product of our surroundings. I believe that if you tell your children that they can do anything they choose to, they will. If you tell them that they are loved beyond measure, they will feel safe! They will be fearless! I personally think that when babies/children have paddy’s and tantrums they are expressing their feelings to a situation. Allow them to have the freedom to express themselves to learn their emotions and grow. We are raising the next generation, it’s not about raising doctors and scientists it’s about raising good humans!
People with empathy and compassion with strength and the knowledge off their own self worth… give them the tools to create their own future!
But you should know, to them you are all of the above! They watch and learn from you. Show them the best version of you. Love yourself, for everything you are they will be!
