An Empowering Message of
Self-Esteem for Children
In today’s society, it seems that our children are faced with more difficult and greater challenges then ever before. It is never easy to be a kid but there is something about today that is driving more and more children to depression, uncertainty and even suicide at such young ages. Bullying has become what seems to be uncontrollable. What if we can we teach our children at an early age, how to love themselves just as they are? How to respect themselves for who they are, long before the fear sets in or the bully arrives, whether there is a non-traditional family setting or chronic childhood illness? What if we could do this before our children become the bully or become the victim? Fear of not being good enough or different can cause all kinds of negative emotions and reactions to life that can be carried with them for a very long time and sometimes forever.
