My four year old son has been pretty hard on himself lately. He says he has a big belly and tonight he told me he has "stick out teeth". Hearing him say these things really saddens me. I tell him everyday how handsome he is and that I think he is absolutely perfect. I don't know where this is coming from or how to boost his self esteem or if this is really even an issue I should worry about. I know the obstacles I have had from being so self conscious, I don't want him going through the same. Have any of you guys gone through this with a child?
Oh, by the way, he does not have a big belly or stick out teeth. There is no reason for him to be feeling this way..
