Taken from the Real Moms of West Michigan segment on Star 105.7 with Tommy and Brook!
Today I have an easy way to build your child’s self esteem.
Ok moms, I want you to imagine yourself walking into work or your child’s school and the first person you see says something like: “Wow, that’s what you’re wearing today?” Wouldn’t you be devastated??
Well, sadly we do that to our kids sometime. Ok, maybe not YOU , but I do that sometime. You do realize that all these tips are actually centered on me and the ways I’ve blown it as a mom. Anyways…
Or think about the greeter at the grocery store…how would you feel if they just kind of looked the other way like- Oh it’s YOU again. Which mine probably does because I’m there so much. I really need to work harder at making a more detailed list.
The point is…are we doing that to our kids? Think about how we respond when they walk in a room.
If we want to help our child feel loved; it’s time to light up when they walk in! A simple smile and some positive words can change your child’s day. I know it sure would change mine.
Instead of: “those pants are way too short” or “come here let me fix your hair.”
Let’s let our kids know how important they are to us!
Build their worthiness.
This is such a simple way to let them know that they are valuable.
Moms, pay attention and light up when those kids walk in the room and let your face reflect how much you love them!
And then deal with the green shirt/red sweatpants combo.
Next week I’m going to give you some tips on dealing with tantrums!
