Together we can make a better world
Today, I know a lot of people with low self-esteem, and I don’t mean when they go through a particularly bad season, but it is already a natural state in their lives and the consequence is their unhappiness.
We only live once and to tiptoe around life without being entirely happy is something we should know how to redirect, but since we are little. For this reason, I recommend this book by Àlex Rovira and Francesc Miralles, Tales to love yourself more, published by Destino and Estrella Polar. Both authors are experts in the self-help books but here they wanted to emphasize the importance of growing key aspects since kids, and probably the most important one is the self-esteem. The book collects 35 stories that will teach the kids to grow this power, raising their imagination, humour, love and self-acceptance. A work addressed to kids from all ages that illustrates through different versions of traditional tales and from different cultures, the keys to embrace the self-esteem so they can grow with confidence and independence, being respectful with themselves and with others, and knowing how to love because they learnt to love themselves, since if you don’t love yourself first you can’t love the others.
The book includes 12 guidelines for the self-esteem in kids. As a parents, we all want the best for our children but not always what we think that can be good for them, it really is. However, the unconditional love never fails, which does not mean to tolerate everything but to love our children for what they are. Give them confidence because they will have to face their own challenges, and however we are always there, as we grow old, there are many situations that we have to face in our own, with determination and confidence.
A very necessary and humane book so all together we can make a better world for our children.
