Self Esteem should not be confused with narcissism.
The Very Principles Denote Conscious Living For Oneself & An Awareness & Upholdment of Social Responsibility.
This is an awareness point and a distinction that needs to be expressed.
The society of today breeds a dis connectivity to ones own esteem and heart space by way of an over identification with technology.
Without judgement, it is a thrivevibe experience to be AWARE if you have your technology or if your technology has you.
How consumed is your attention to the tangible world and your relatioship to it versus that of your relationship with your mobile technological device(s)?
For children to thrive into humans and leaders of integrity, a conscious investment needs to be made into developing skills tangible to the world – OFFLINE
This invites your child to develop a stable, confident and empowered sense of well being and security within.
The intention in instilling a child with a healthy sense of self and confidence within diminishes the likelihood of bullying, giving and receiving.
