Building Self-Compassion in Children
Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Is raising children's self-esteem what it is cracked up to be?
For most of us, we have heard about the importance of self-esteem for so long now that we do not even question it. However, the research doesn't support that raising children's self-esteem is beneficial.
In contrast, self-compassion, which is being kind to oneself, is being shown to be an effective way to help children (and adults!) be happier and successful in life.
Dr. Mike Brooks will present on the topic of "Building Self-Compassion in Children" in the hopes that you and your children will benefit from developing this powerful skill.
