Helping your child with developing a positive self-esteem can be challenging. It is especially challenging when you are working on your own self-esteem.
One way to combat the negativity that will come to your mind is with affirmations. Repeating affirmations throughout the day will remind yourself that you are an awesome mom and are doing a great job.
I have put together several affirmations that will help you with not only stay positive but building yourself up so that you can, in turn, build up your child.
