Everybody Has Traits They Wish They Could Change
Healthy Self-Esteem Is Armor Against Challenges
Sometimes in life we need those that we love to show us how to appreciate the gifts we already have. In this Dove commercial, they set out to remind these young girls that their curls are beautiful! How did they do this? By engaging their family and friends to join in on a “curls” celebration!
We all have some trait we wish we could change. Maybe it’s our hair, weight, or even height. Whatever it is, it is time we learn to embrace what we have instead of wishing we had something else or be someone else. This is an extremely important lesson to teach to our children!
The main goal is to foster self-esteem in our children. According to KidsHealth, “Healthy self-esteem is like a child’s armor against the challenges of the world.” By helping our kids to develop positive self esteem, we are helping them to “feel good about themselves seem to have an easier time handling conflicts and resisting negative pressures.” (1)
Development of self-esteem starts at an early age, so we want to make sure our children know their worth as early as possible! Remember to inspire and encourage your children to reach for his or her dreams – whatever those dreams are!
