Empowered life experience is not achieved after the fact, nor can it be created on-demand or when it is needed most. It’s a way of life.
This morning, a member of my Facebook group asked how can we, as parents, protect our children from the humiliations of the external world. To quote, she asked, “how can I strengthen and prepare my child for such situations, so that he/she will be strong enough to speak up when feeling humiliated, (even if it is a teacher), and not feeling ashamed?”
What is Trust?
Wow. This is a hard question to answer and an essential one, too. Trust and confidence will look and feel differently in every family, and for every member of the family, yet to achieve good trust and the feeling of self-confidence, one must live a life of celebration and acceptance. One must know, internally, that their feelings, wishes, wants, needs, thoughts, words, and experiences – matter.
This is an elaborate account on what trust is and how to build it.
Parenting Practices that don’t Build Trust and Confidence
I’ve written extensively about many of the prevalent parenting strategies that teach children the exact opposite – that their inner voices don’t matter, that their feelings don’t matter, that the feelings of others will always matter more than their feelings, and the list continues. Here’s a little roundup of all these articles, if you’re interested:

But today, we are here to create a brand new conversation, to celebrate a new way of life, a refreshing form of communication, that does the exact opposite than the above – it creates a connection.
It celebrates the soul.
It unites us at heart.
I decided to write this article and to create the free eBook that compliments it because I wanted to give a proper, valid answer to the question above. I wanted to offer you practical and doable tips and sentences to raise your children in an empowering environment. Children who will become adults who know who they are and what they are worth, who draw their value and confidence from within, who count on themselves to better their life experience every single day.
Imagine how you would feel if you had grown up in a family in which the following trust and confidence affirmations were repeated to you day in, and day out.
What kind of an adult would you be? Do you think you would be any different than you are today?
Ask yourself these questions before you begin using these affirmations will your little ones, this is the only way for you to honestly believe every word you say.
