Kids’ Cheerleader

How you see yourself as an adult depends largely on how your parents saw you when you were young. That’s a good thing to keep in mind when it comes to our own kids.

You and I have a huge responsibility when it comes to our kids’ self-image. We set the tone for how they will see themselves throughout their lives. By loving them unconditionally, and believing in them, no matter what, we’re literally setting the stage for a lifetime of healthy self-esteem.

People with a healthy self-image are more likely to be successful in all areas of life—from family to business to personal relationships. When we feel good about ourselves, it affects everything we say and do. We’re more likely to try new things, or to take risks that can lead to great accomplishments. Almost all success stories begin with a parent who believed in their child.

So set your kids up for greatness! Begin today by being their biggest cheerleader.
