Raise a Goodwill Superstar Challenge Day 3: Be Yourself!
Peer pressure in school can make it tough for kids to embrace who they really are. It's important to teach your kids not to lose their identity because they worry about what others will think. Today's challenge help your kids embrace their individuality!
Here are some tips to get you started:
- Read books to your kids that encourages them to embrace being an individual and being themselves.
- Let your kids choose their own clothes. Kids know what patterns and colors they like best. Let them express their style and individuality in their wardrobe and resist the urge to change them.
- Listen to their stories and how they express themselves through art. You can learn so much about your kids' interests and how they see the world through the stories they tell and the pictures they make.
- Be a role model. Lead by example by embracing your own individuality. Show your kids that they can live life and be exactly who they want to be.
Did you worry about what others thought when you were a kid? How about now? Do you worry about your kids caving to peer pressure and sacrificing their own individuality?
