You are beautiful

It’s something we’ve heard before. I report it because, for me, it bears repeating. I find I do this with my son. It sounds the same, really. But boy-oh-boy, as someone growing up with low self-esteem, I can tell you that it’s not. Even though as an adult, I say what “they” say a parent shouldn’t, and it still sounds/means the same thing “they” say I should be saying. Semantics. Just thought I’d share. Gentle reminder.


via Study finds children with low self-esteem are often praised for personal qualities instead of efforts.
