How Can You Help Your Teenager Develop More Confidence?

The truth is that children and teens learn by watching and hearing what we say and do. When we model confidence and high self-esteem, we teach them. When we model good work ethics and acceptance of others, we show teens how they should behave and help them develop confidence.

Steer Clear of Comparisons and Shaming Others

When you surf the web with your kids, watch what you say. When using a search engine, beware of letting slip negative comments about the photos on the search engine results page (SERP). About 68% of online experiences start on a search engine. Avoid comparing one individual to another and making comments that could be seen as shaming. You can make compliments while teaching manners, shopping, or searching for information online.

Talk About Body Acceptance

You can also teach body acceptance while teaching self-improvement. Focus on proper hygiene and health in and of themselves. Teach that you should wash your face and brush your teeth daily as a part of essential healthy hygiene. This practice helps teens with common problems such as acne without making them focus on their looks. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, more than 50 million people in the U.S. have acne, with approximately 85% being teenagers.

Being A Great Grandmother Doesn't Require Perfection


As a granddaughter I have fond memories of my grandmother. 

Snuggling up on the coach, laying back in her lap and cooking in the kitchen. 

I never gave one thought about her shape or size. 

She was perfect in my eyes. 

Warm, soft and comfy. 

As a grandmother I often remind myself my granddaughters don’t care what size and shape I am. 

What they care about is how they feel when they are with me. 

They are seen, heard, smothered in love and always know grandma provides a safe space.

An Energetic Clearing Tool To Teach Your Children

Water, it’s more than a life force, it’s a rejuvenator and a purifier. 

If you’ve followed the work of Dr. Emoto’s work in his book The Hidden Messages Of Water you already know how incredible water truly is. 

It does more than just keep us alive and cleanse us physically. It cleans our energy field as well. 

An excellent conscious living tool is to create a habit of visualizing all your stuck energy, stress, and anxiety going down the drain. 

Concentrate on the feeling of the water on your skin. In your minds eye see the water washing away your negative thoughts, anger, anxiety or any unwanted energy. 

See your chakras radiantly glowing with bright colors expanding out beyond your body. 

Release, knowing, unwanted energies are washing down the drain. 

This can also work while bathing, swimming and playing in water. Teach your children how to practice letting water clear the energy, becoming one of their treasured energetic tools.

Can your child reflect the energy of someone else in the room?

Can your child reflect the energy of someone else in the room?
Intentional Conscious Parenting Kids Card Deck

Absolutely they can!
Children are their own little beings. They have good and bad days just like adults do, but they also have the uncanny ability to mirror a person in their environment taking on an energy of anger, fussiness and discontent. Maybe you've noticed this?
If your child is modeling someone else’s behavior nearby he/she might be unaware especially if he is young. Even babies often cry when in the environment of a confused, angry or aggressive personality. They also cry when they are fussy, hungry or need changing.
