Children develop how think about themselves at an early age. They soak in how people treat each other and how others treat them. Right or wrong they develop perceptions of themselves by their surrounding inputs. It doesn’t have to be a correct perception, but it is the perception they carry into their adult lives.
What self image are our children forming about themselves. What self acceptance, or lack thereof, are they thinking…
Are they smart? Is there appearance acceptable? Do others want to be around them? Do people value what they have to say?
These are all questions we as adults ask ourselves, and they come from experiences we had when we were young, and develop how we cope with rejection and how we handle conflict in our adult lives.
