Have you ever wished you were someone else? Many of us have. 🙋‍♂️🙋🏿‍♂️🙋‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️

It’s hard not to compare ourselves to others, especially when they seem to have it all figured out. 😔

That feeling is terribly awful. But it’s even worse when we see our children having that same feeling. 😞

The most important thing we can teach our kids is how to be strong enough on their own, so they don’t need validation from others. 🙏🏻

We need to teach them that they are enough just as they are, and we can do this by showing them how awesome it feels when someone else believes in them as much as we do. 💜

And so, three of our fellow neighbors are helping children to discover their innate power to be what they want, to find confidence in their own attributes, and to believe that they are good enough in their uniqueness, and not in comparison with other people. 👦👦🏿👧👧🏿

We cordially invite you and your little ones to join David Newell (who played the beloved Mr. McFeely on Mister Rogers Neighborhood) and our John Masiulionis for Ep. #16 of PR From The Heart’s Neighborly Reviews Bookcast, as they share Jennifer Decker’s Oliver and the Wishing Star, Mariah Kalungu’s AMKA! Little Lele: You’ve Got All You Need to be Great, and John Parra’s Growing an Artist: The Story of a Landscaper and His Son. 📚
