Chicken Soup for the Soul Book Review and #Giveaway - Be The Best You Can Be: Inspiring True Stories about Goals and Values for Kids and Preteens
Since both of my boys have been in the 90th + percentile for size since birth (meaning they are large for their age) and have extreme personalities on both ends of the spectrum (in my opinion), I have always been overly worried they could potentially be perceived in some way as a bully OR be on the reciprocal end of that kind of situation. As a parent, of course I also want the very best for my little ones as they grow up.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Be The Best You Can Be: Inspiring True Stories about Goals and Values for Kids and Preteens synopsis says "Self-esteem, tolerance, good values – these are gifts that will last children a lifetime and help them become successful adults. These stories, great for kids to discuss with parents and teachers, help them be the best they can be. This collection shows kids positive role models to follow in its stories about making good choices, having confidence, and doing the right thing. Parents and grandparents will enjoy discussing the stories with children, making it a family event. Great for teachers to share with students, too."
I appreciate the fact that this book teaches my children the importance of not only self respect but respect for others and their differences. It also gives children real life situations so they know we are not just preaching on the subject. The stories are instances which the kids can understand without having to expose them to today's tragedies which are causes of these types of self esteem issues.
This book while geared towards younger than Alana's age, is perfect for her right now. If you've read anything recently about my "Cry for Parent's of Today's Teens", you know we are struggling with our children growing up in such a technological society where social media plays such a big part in shaping kids. http://www.aluckyladybug.com/2015/02/a-cry-for-parents-of-todays-teens.html
