We all care at times what others think of us. I get it and I was 100% like this when I was younger.
I don’t want my kids growing up like that though.
Now I get it. We are human and we all care to an extent. It’s completely normal, but when they are making decisions based on what others think about them that is not ok. I just don’t want them changing who they are to fit in.
I put together some tips below that you can use to help her stop caring what others think.
Name Her Qualities: I want you to take some time to dive deep into who she is and what makes her special. She needs to see these things and appreciate them. She also has to be accepting of the things she can’t change. She needs to understand that her journey and the ups and downs in her life are all part of growing up. Discover what makes her so unique and talk about those qualities.
A daily gratitude practice: Having a daily gratitude practice is key for a healthy mindset. Saying or listing what you are grateful for every day will change her life. She will be reminded of her beautiful life and the wonderful aspects of it.
Teach her that their opinions of her are none of her business: The bottom line is not everyone is going to like what you do, say, how you look, how you feel, how you talk, etc.…… It’s just a fact. You are not everyone’s cup of tea. This may be hard to understand as a child, but you can’t control this. What you can control is how you react to this. Everyone has an opinion on everything and everyone. But guess what….. It’s none of your business what they think. It’s what you think of yourself that matters the most.
Teach her how to use Self-Talk: I will say this until I am blue in the face. Using affirmations and the way we talk to ourselves is a HUGE part of a healthy mindset. Teaching our daughters that how we talk to ourselves matters. Often we are our biggest critics and we need to change that. We need to be our #1 fan! Moms can help their daughters by modeling this for them! Be your biggest fan and show her this and hopefully she will do the same in her life!
