This was written by a wonderful parent from Josie’s Inner Circle sent to me last night.
Those reading it might not identify the magic in what her son said, but magic it is! He is proud of himself and not looking for outside praise. His inner self belief is over flowing! So often we over praise our children in turn making them pleasers! Making their wins more about our opinions on it than their feelings!
Kids end up doing things to please us! I do NOT want my kids to be controlled by what mummy wants or if mummy’s proud. I am SO PROUD SO PROUD of my children ALWAYS. Yes sometimes they might make mistakes and do things I disagree with ( I do that all the time) does that make me less proud absolutely NOT!
Children are not meant to be perfectly behaved all the time, that’s not how they learn and grow. It is for us to teach, connect and model. Well worth remembering this guys for those moments of spinning!
Encourage only be your child’s cheerleader!!
