It is back to school time! My kids have been in school for just about two weeks. In some parts of the country, it does not start up until next week, but there are still others who have been in class for nearly a month!
All three of my kids were excited about getting back and seeing their friends. They were all anxious about the first day, but I think that was, even more, the case for my son. He entered into middle school this year.
Since my son is quite a bit smaller than most of his friends. The poor kid does not even weigh 55 lbs and he is 11 years old. However, what he lacks in size he certainly makes up for in personality.
He’s a smart kid who makes friends easily. He is funny, charismatic, and makes people smile pretty much everywhere he goes. But, what sets him apart from most kids is his ability to play the guitar. This kid can play Thunderstruck on his electric guitar – and he’s never had a lesson.
While we encourage all of our kids to be self-confident, it does come much more naturally for both of our girls. Our son has a bit more of a challenge with this. Some things we do to ensure he is confident in who he includes:
- Making sure he knows what he is good at doing
- Being proud of who he is
- Praising him
- Love him
- Encourage and support his love of music and computers
- Helping him define his own look and style
It is funny because he usually does not care much about the products he uses, but he is very selective about his body wash. We’ve tried many brands, but he always asks me to take him back to get his favorite — AXE Phoenix: Clean + Cool Body Wash.
I asked him why he likes it and he says he likes the way it smells and how it makes him feel. I like it too because he does NOT smell like a pre-teen boy. If you haven’t tried it, AXE Phoneix is a classic, fruity fragrance featuring lavender, geranium and citrus. I love the earthly composition and subtle blend of wood and fruit. It smells soooo good!

As parents, we want to do everything we can to encourage our kids to be confident and happy. It is the little things we do every day to encourage this behavior and raise our kids to be the people we want for them to be.
