Wellness Wednesday
Some children can be very hard on themselves. They feel like failures if they aren't the best. To ward off this perfectionism, set reasonable goals for your children and relax about normal mistakes. When they are self-critical, don't brush it off. Instead, discuss it. Remind your children that no one can be perfect. Point out their strengths, and teach them to use affirmative self-talk, such as "I'm proud of how hard I tried."
