In today’s episode, Dewone Bennett explains how you can empower your child’s sense of identity to help them live a more fulfilling life.
We all love our children and want them to live great lives. It’s important to remember that sometimes our love if not channeled correctly can end up hindering instead of helping them. Our job as parents is to set the stage for our children to flourish so that they are able to stay grounded in who they are when they go out into the world and hopefully never question their sense of identity. Seeking constant outside approval or constantly going with the crowd are some signs that your child isn’t grounded in who they are. A habit that more and more children seem to be falling into by the day!
Dewone goes over some parent behaviors that make kids fear making mistakes which can also lead to having a fear of taking risks. He talks about habits you can cultivate that will help guide their sense of identity and encourage them to view making mistakes in a positive new light. Creating a safe space where children feel accepted and encouraged to express themselves freely can make all the difference in the developing years. The more children feel loved and accepted, the more they will confidently grow into themselves.
