I have always wondered…How do you get a kid to believe in themselves.
I just figured it out. You don’t.
I tell my kids on a regular basis how awesome they are. And they barely believe me. And then something just clicks for them and they believe it. Because they believe it. I think it is important that I help my kids understand their self-worth but the worth that defines them is theirs. Not mine. From time to time I see self-doubt in my kids. I want to fix it. I have learned not to…they can.
At least today that is how I feel. I can’t fix everything, or make everything perfect or even make my kids good at everything. But I love them. Even when they eat too much chocolate and go to bed without cleaning the kitchen because they have a tummy ache.
Hope your day was filled with love. Happy Valentine’s Day.
