  1. I can say from experience that this is true. I grew up being told I wasn’t good enough, pretty enough, or smart enough. It took a long time to learn that I was enough and I could do anything I wanted. Children believe what the adults in their lives say because they haven’t learned about disappointment and pain.

  2. Absolutely true! Too often children’s ideas and thoughts are dismissed and criticized by the adults around them, as well as by their peers. All this does is damage their self-confidence. My son says hilarious things sometimes that leave me wondering where in the world he gets his ideas from, but regardless of how farfetched the idea may be, I always try to focus on and praise him for the smart points he makes. Kids’ minds are amazing.

    • Even if you then analyse the idea together to get it further helps. I hate it how kids get shut up by adults just because it doesn’t “make sense” what they are saying…


      • Exactly. Same here. Sometimes it takes a little piecing things together, but there’s always some great thinking within, and that thinking should be praised. Never should a child’s ideas be dismissed or belittled.
