Spot on @sunflowermom it's far too dangerous. It is that overwhelming sense of curiosity, no doubt their peers are doing it. So detrimental though, at such a vulnerable age. Let us know how you get on with your daughter

I really love what you said @Sunshine6 - “If we support them to build a relationship with themselves beyond their achievements then they can up days and down days, they can succeed and fail without it defining them” I couldn’t agree more or have articulated it better, thank you for sharing with us.
What did your daughter think @sunflowermom? With all you’ve had going on I understand if it was a conversation that wasn’t priority

Sorry for the time between check ins! I am new to forums :-) I have found that getting to know what it feels like to have a relationship with myself beyond what I do is how I can best support my kids to do the same for them because I know what it feels, looks and sounds like! If I am just telling them and not doing it myself it is just a theory and, as they are sensory beings and feel more than they understand or can translate, there is a mismatch for them of what we say and what they see. That has been my experience.
So rock on dating ourselves :-)

Hi @Sunshine6 very beautifully written! It sounds like you are setting an incredible example I really love this sentence "If I am just telling them and not doing it myself it is just a theory and, as they are sensory beings and feel more than they understand or can translate, there is a mismatch for them of what we say and what they see." So great to hear that demonstrating some self-love is supporting your household
Hi @sunflowermom, It's great you raised this topic with your daughter! Such an important conversation to have
