5 Ways to Model Self-Acceptance for Your Kids
My kids know that their mother is silly and quirky. I own and state this often. I model self-acceptance often.
I am notorious for tripping over myself. They see these things, and I name it for them. It is who I am. I embrace it so that they, in turn, can embrace who they are.
It is so easy to become embarrassed over situations that are outside our comfort zones. To worry non-stop about something we said last week, or forgot our wallet at home. When we embrace these moments of less than perfectness, we send the message that accidents happen, we learn from them, maybe laugh a little and move forward with our lives.
