TEACH THEM THAT THEY’RE GOOD ENOUGH!
As parents it’s only natural that we want to tell our children that they’re the most beautiful in the world, to praise everything they do and tell them they excel at everything they try their hand at.
But Doctor Tara Wyne says it’s important that parents help to give their children a sense of “grounded realism and honesty”.
“Our aim should be to teach our children that they’re good enough. We have to say that we love them no matter what, that we value their gifts and talents but that not all gifts and talents are evenly distributed. One child might look like a Disney princess but another won't, but she might be a star at school. Parents have to model a value driven life where children see people are treated with equal respect irrespective of their looks.”
