Today, I would like to talk about a topic that's always been a sensitive subject...
This is something I've always had little of as a child and as an adult. I have trouble believing in myself when it comes to any and every aspect of my life. But, 14 years ago I was blessed with the responsibility of raising a little human, and I knew without a doubt that I wanted to raise him to believe in himself and believe in his potential.
The boy now wants to be a lawyer and possibly go into politics. I told him just last night if he didn't become a lawyer then I was going to smack him...mainly because the boy will argue any subject from every angle possible.
So, self-esteem is something I wanted to instill in Brenn even from a young age. Something that helped me in teaching Brenn is reading him books. I never realized how many books there are about self-esteem.
Mommy Edition has a great resource that lists all kinds of books to help parents instill a strong foundation of self-esteem and confidence. It's never too early to start building this foundation!
Some of my favorites listed:
Who can go wrong with Dr. Seuss?!
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love this book.
Brenn and I wore this book out when he was younger!
Because I know I'm lacking in the dancing skills department
but I LOVE to dance.
Brenn is is big into sports, especially football. This book is great,
I'm pretty sure I don't even have to include a caption as to why I like this book...If you have a teenage son I know you'll understand...
This has always been one of my favorite books, even when I was a teenager.
