One of the most important things that a child needs today is a good self-esteem. I work on building my kids up every day, although I do keep it real. Recently I was sent a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive for Kids, and I have loved reading these stories to myself, and sharing them with the kids.
101 Stories about Good Decisions, Self-Esteem, and Positive Thinking
Give a child gifts that will last a lifetime — self-esteem, tolerance, values, and inner strength. The values that children learn today will stay with them for the rest of their lives. This collection gives kids positive role models to follow in its 101 stories about doing the right thing and making healthy choices. You and your child will enjoy discussing the stories, making it a family event. Great for teachers to share with students too.
The chapters in this book are:
- Trying Something New
- Doing the Right Thing
- Accepting Differences
- Developing Self Esteem
- Handling Bullies
- Appreciating Family
- Making Real Friends
- Making Good Choices
- Being Responsible
- Being Grateful
I think that V is a little too young for this kind of book, so we haven’t read it much to her. C is also young, but is starting to deal with the “real world” some, and I think that using this as part of reinforcing her awesomeness will help her out. When she gets older, I’m going to give it to her to read on her own when she wants.
I don’t think that this is just for kids though. Some of the stories, such as The Gift, remind me how much I have to be thankful for. I’ve also caught my older girls leafing through this book as well.
