Many little ones struggle with self-esteem and self-confidence during childhood. 😞

In fact, some kids are so uncertain of themselves that they don’t even try. 😔

As parents, caregivers, and custodians of little ones, it’s important for us to teach our children to believe in themselves and have confidence in their abilities and value. 👦👧👦🏿👧🏿

And so, one of our newest neighbors is here to help little ones remember that they can do anything they set their mind to…all they need to do is try. 🧡

Children’s author and the owner of Mother Doves Academy LLC, Theresa A. Smith-Hickman, joins our John Masiulionis for Episode #147 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share her inspiring story, the release of her new children’s book, I Can…Just Try, how we can help our little ones learn to shift their mindsets and believe in themselves more, why it’s important for children and adults to have a support system, her work as a child care provider, tutor, and storyteller through Mother Doves Academy, the significance of connecting with mission and purpose in life, plus much more. 👩🏿📖🕊️
