A healthy self-esteem is important, especially when kids enter the rocky turbulent teenage years. If one has a healthy self-esteem, peer pressure would unlikely be an issue.
That is why Mummy Eliz hopes that Princess Chelsea can develop a healthy self-esteem.
Mummy Eliz tries hard to remember to give her encouragement for her efforts in daily life, but sometimes focuses too much on the negative side, thus resulting in her feeling discouraged at times.
Thus, when Princess Chelsea gets positive feedbacks from people she meet, Mummy Eliz will try to record it down.
Her Chinese Teacher who taught her for a year wrote in a parting note to her:
Mummy Eliz never had a teacher telling her that she loves her.
And just recently, local artist Peter Draw said that Princess is the sweetest 5 year old girl he had met, after she attended one of his Art Workshops titled “The Sweetest Gift” at Ion Orchard Art Gallery.
Of course, that must be a courtesy statement made as it was just a day after Princess’ 5th Birthday, but it made her day nevertheless.
