Growing up, I always felt very confident and encouraged by my parents. Both my mom and dad constantly told me that I was special, unique, and capable to achieve anything. Hearing all of this made me believe in myself when I became an adult and living my own life. It helped me feel prepared to be a parent as well and I wish to pass on the encouragement and positive thinking to my kids.

These 5 factors our kids need to hear are very important, especially growing up in a world now that can be discouraging and full of fear. However, if our kids believe in themselves then they can be confident in their own ability.
