One of the things I started to think about when I found out that I was having a baby girl was how to make sure she developed a good sense of self esteem. Girls are notoriously hard on themselves for how the look, what they weigh, if they’re as pretty as the person sitting next to them. It doesn’t help that as women, we are often each other’s worst enemy when it comes to self esteem and self-confidence.
I work every day to give her the confidence she’ll need to navigate through those tween and teen years of who is wearing what and playing down your strengths to fit in. We encourage her to try new things and praise her efforts, all while giving her the space to problem solve and learn from mistakes. Most of all I try to be a good role model; negative self-talk is a learned behavior, so I work to ensure she doesn’t pick it up from me.
