Level Up to Pro Parenting

Our kids are always watching, and they model their behavior on our own. That means if you get down on yourself for making a mistake, your kids will do the same whenever they mess up. We want to cultivate resilience in our kids, as well as a positive attitude. That means for their sake, you need to model self-compassion. 

Here’s an easy method: try to talk to yourself as though you were talking to a close friend. If your pal told you about a mistake they made, you wouldn’t be cruel or accuse them of being a horrible person. You’d encourage them to let it go and say that things are going to be okay.

Your self-kindness can be for the kids’ sake, not yours. But you will surely benefit too, which is a win-win. Go ahead and treat yourself with our Instaread on Raising Good Humans.
