At this point in your life, you’ve probably realized that there’s only one person in this whole world that you can control…and that’s YOU! You are stuck with yourself for your whole life. You have to listen to your own thoughts, watch your body change and grow, and make decision after decision. There’s no escaping YOU!
This is why, starting today, you are going to be an AMAZING friend to YOU. There is no other person in this world who will be with you day-in-and-day-out, moment-by-moment. You are all of you’ve got, FOREVER.
On that note, I would like to introduce you to your new BFF… YOU!
This activity is designed to help your child build self-compassion and treat themselves like a Best Friend! As Dr Kristen Neff says, “With self-compassion, we give ourselves the same kindness and care we’d give to a good friend.”
