I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend.
For a while now, I’ve wanted to have a chat once a week. I realize you all are busy, and you visit my site for a quick recipe or craft, but I love hearing from you. So please join me for the first – “Let’s talk Tuesday”.
Recently my sister asked me when Avery (my 10 year old daughter) would be able to have an Instagram account. Truth be told, while I love Instagram and think it’s one of the most fun social sites, I’m not ready for Avery to have her own account for a few reasons.
1. I want to keep her little and innocent as long as I can. I want her to choose playing with friends in real life over texting and “liking” pics on Instagram.
2. The Explore page – yikes!
3. The Selfies. Did you hear that selfie the word was recently added to the dictionary? Is that a sign of the times or what? I think selfies are fine and great, and in fact, I almost love seeing the occasional selfie of my friends who are also moms on Instagram just to see them pop up in their own pictures once in a while. But when it’s all selfies all the time, it can get old quick. It seems that the younger generation post selfies all the time. Have you noticed?
While I think we all can benefit from the Lucille Ball quote above, what are you doing to encourage self love with your children while helping them see the difference between a healthy self love and overdoing it?
