So I was washing my daughters hair today and as always we noticed extreme shrinkage. She has 4C hair so those that have a similar hair curl pattern can relate. I then siezed the moment as a learning opportunity, as I always try to take advantage of times like this to express how wonderfully she was made by God.
I went on to tell her she had MAGIC HAIR. I stressed how amazing it is to have your hair shrink from blown out straight to these kinky, curly locks at the touch of water. How amazing is this!
I encourage you to help your children each day to see the beauty in themselves. This is the only way to build self-love, self-esteem and self-pride in them. Best of luck as we raise our amazing children, gifts given to us by God.
