Let Her Make Decisions
Be A Good Role Model
As her mother it’s only normal to question myself…. have I been putting myself down in front of her. Often times I find myself on speaker phone with a close friend as I’m multi tasking, laundry, dinner, etc. and I’m wondering if she’s heard me complain about my weight gain, my wrinkles, my dry skin?? Was she learning this from me? I can’t turn back time, but I can move forward and just be aware of what I say around her. I don’t ever talk bad about myself to her, but I should know better than to talk within her hearing. I’m her mother, and for a 4 year old, I’m pretty much her superhero. Teaching her confidence and acceptance has always been be a priority for me and I don’t see that changing.
