HOW YOU THINK, MATTERS. If your children believe they can, they will! A simple strategy to raise your kids with self confidence, self esteem, and critical thinking skills is to encourage THEM to find a solution–not you. No matter your child’s age, It’s easy to want to jump in and solve all of life’s problems, yet how will your kids learn that they are capable unless you allow them to self advocate and do for themselves? How will they know that you think they are capable if you do everything for them? Before you jump in to “solve,” ask them, “What’s a solution?” and then listen. You will be amazed at what you hear. Praise their ingenuity and creativity and then praise the process they implement to achieve their goals. Your kids will inspire you!
