Self-doubt is a natural part of growing up and it’s something we all face at some point in our lives. But for our little ones, self-doubt can become paralyzing.

Thus, nurturing self-belief in our kids is one of the most important things we can work on as a parent. Kids who feel secure in themselves and their unique abilities are more likely to grow up happier, healthier, and more productive adults who know how lucky they are for having been given such gifts! 

And so, one of our fellow shining stars is on a mission to empower our younger ones to realize their own power and potential. She desires to show kids how to shine on their own!

Children’s Book Author Annesley Hackathorn joins our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest for Episode #171 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to discuss how parents can help their kids cultivate self-belief, courage, self-acceptance, and kindness in their children while teaching them to be open to new experiences and think creatively. They also draw from their knowledge of different dog breeds and share how we can show our love to our furry friends this coming spring and beyond.

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Annesley by purchasing your copy of Shenleigh O’Doodle—Half Golden, Half Poodle and enjoying this empowering read with your little ones: 📖
