 We focus on self-acceptance for episode 57 and present “12 ways to teach our kids self-acceptance”.  Self awareness is ok, but it gets us in trouble.  The real key is acceptance.  The more you raise your awareness level, the more your acceptance level needs to be raised.  This is where most of us fall short.  Self acceptance is defined as an individual’s satisfaction or happiness with oneself.

Here are the  12 Ways to Teach Our Kids Self-Acceptance:

1. Always have compassion for others – bully’s, mean kids
2. Quiet your inner critic – separate it from who you are
3. Celebrate strengths
4. Failure is ok. Even if we have failure, it doesn’t mean we are a failure
5. Focus your energy on what you can control, not what you can’t
6. Fake it ’til you make it – Think first and then you will know, practice
7. Do charitable things – help others in need
8. Who’s around you? Surround yourself with people who believe in you
9. Come up with a mantra – “I can do this, I am doing my best”
10.  Value effort and courage instead of accomplishments
11. Talk about your feelings – good/bad
12. Teach them they are worthy just the way they are
