KY Woman shares the rule to follow to help your children love each other
Do you love yourself? Are you positive when talking about yourself or yourself to others? If you don’t love yourself, I mean truly love who you are inside and out, you might pass your negative feelings about yourself onto your children without even realizing it.
I’m not talking about your kids looking at you negatively, they love you no matter what you look like, how much you weigh or even how badly you behave. I’m talking about how they see themselves.
If you’re always talking badly about yourself, you’re inadvertently teaching them that’s how you’re supposed to treat yourself. Critical, harsh, ruthless, unloving and negative.
How you treat yourself is how they will treat themselves. So please think about it the next time you talk or treat yourself badly. Little ears listen and little eyes watch.
A Kentucky mom shares a rule to help kids learn to love themselves
An amazing mom from Scottsville, KY, near Bowling Green, has posted a rule to follow that will help teach your kids that they don’t have to be perfect to be loved.
Here is his Facebook post,
I have a rule that I never told my children. If ever one of them asks me to take a picture, I will always say yes, no matter how I look or how I feel. When they show me this photo, I always say: “I love me!” Or “I’m so pretty!”. I don’t talk negatively about my appearance around my kids. Even with 30 pounds of pregnancy and nursing weight, I will not speak negatively about my body to my children. Choosing not to avoid a camera, mirror, or spotlight is an extension of that.
After 6 years of being kind to myself for the sake of my children, I learned the secret. It becomes less of an act and your reality. You end up believing the words you say to yourself.
