Do you have specific lessons you want to teach your children to help them be happy, safe or successful people?
There are lessons I think every child should learn. To me, shaping by these 5 lessons will be really important and helpful to a child's experience.
1. "You are fantastic!" I want my children (and all children) to know how fabulous they are. I think it's so important for their sense of self-worth!
2. "Treat others as you'd like to be treated." This simple statement, as old-fashioned as it is, reminds us to feel for others.
3. "You can do anything in life if you're willing to work for it." Dreams can be a reality with hard work and I think that's a really important lesson for children to learn.
4. "You are loved." Tell them every day. Show them even more. Just make sure they always know! :)
5. "Be open." Every moment is a chance to learn. Keep your mind and heart open to new perspectives and experiences.
