Self-compassion reduces anxiety and depression. It is linked to greater well-being, emotional coping skills and compassion for others. Unfortunately, many of us have a hard time practicing self-compassion. Instead we default to blaming, shaming, and bashing ourselves.
Therefore, it’s important to teach self-compassion to our children. A foundation for being kind and gentle with themselves and processing their thoughts and feelings without judgment. These are important skills for being a healthy adult and building healthy relationships.
Kids need self-compassion now.
Kids and teens commonly criticize themselves over their looks, athletic abilities, academic performance, popularity, and likability.
When kids who are struggling practice self-compassion, powerful things happen: Their sense of self-worth, resilience, and ability to cope with problems improves in all sorts of settings.
