You can’t be what you can’t see…

I’ve had my sweet 12 year old niece with me all week during her spring break.  12 is such an interesting age.  On one hand they are mature and smart, and on the other hand they are still an impressionable kid looking to find their way in the world.  It just reminded me how much our kids are watching us.  They learn from watching what we do, how we respond to things, how we talk about others and what we think about ourselves.  They are learning how to move through this life and without the proper example they can really get lost.  So today, remind yourselves that you too are being watched and observed by the little ones in your life, and choose to show them how to be confident, conscious and kind.  Happy Friday!
