INVESTING IN OUR KIDS FOR WHO THEY ARE, NOT FOR WHAT THEY DO
Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is almost synonymous with servant hood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.
LET’S GET INTO THE CONFIDENT CONTENT:
I’m not interested in what you do, I’m interested in who you are.
What we do does not define us; it is certainly a part of our identities, but it is not who we are.
This is a concept that as a 32 year-old I am currently working proactively to master and make a reality in my life – it inspires me to find a way to speak differently into the life of my child. My parents spoke into me what was spoken into them – words of affirmation about what I accomplished. They loved me unconditionally, that is without a doubt, but somewhere along the line I taught myself to want to live to impress them.
HOW TO SPEAK TO YOUR CHILD’S CHARACTER:
- Affirm their worth in the small acts of daily life – dig deeper than just simply acknowledging that they’ve done a kind act or exhibited love to someone…seek to identify and recognize what deeper quality of the heart they are displaying that motivated them to said act of kindness.
- Teach them to live for significance over success
- Speak to their character as often as possible – they are inundated with messages of performance and achievement everywhere they go, so the more we as parents can pour into them, the better equipped they will be to know that they are valued and loved for who they are, not for what they do.
