Does anyone else feel like a broken record sometimes? I think that if my girls’ vocabularies were limited to the words they heard from me, it would be limited to the following phrases:
Are you listening?
Why did you do that?
Are you serious right now?
I don’t speak whinese!
On the flip side, I hope they hear me when I say things like:
Your picture is beautiful!
You look gorgeous today!
Thank you for using your manners.
You’re being so helpful!
I love you!
I have been making a conscious effort to say more positive things to my girls. I know how fragile a girl’s self esteem is, and I want them to be confident. I always want them to feel special and loved.
What are some things you say to, or do with your kids to make sure they know you think they’re special?
