The Worth of Self Worth

About This Episode

Imagine the type of adult your child would turn out to be if every day you said to them something along the lines of, “you are good, courageous, wise, compassionate, peaceful, and kind,” instead of things like, “you look so pretty, I like your dress, your shoes are so cool, I hope you had fun today.”  Whether it’s derogatory remarks, compliments or cheers for work well done, our words are etched in the fiber of our children’s souls. A child’s sense of value and worth is tied to the blessings or the curses we pour into them. If your child is like a sculpture, and your words are like a chisel, think about how your words are shaping your child’s identity and self-worth. Would you like them to value themselves based on their looks and what they possess? Or would you want them to value their strong character traits? Speak words that bless your children, strengthen them, and reinforce their positive attributes.
