Part of self-love is being accountable and responsible for yourself.
Mature, responsible adults learn to take care of themselves, they contribute to society in a positive way, do not have unrealistic expectations of themselves the world and others, and do not expect everything to be handed to them or that everything should be free.
It is a proven fact that those who work for their money feel psychologically better about themselves than those who do not.
When people know they are contributing to the whole, they have self-respect, a better attitude about themselves, life, and others in general.
The worst thing you can do for someone is to do everything for them which makes them feel they cannot do for themselves.
This starts in childhood.
A parents responsibility is to raise their children to become strong adults.
Giving your child simple chores makes them feel like they are a part of the family, gives them a sense of accomplishment, that they can so something well which will lead them to a sense of dignity and self-worth. As they get older you add to the list of chores or things they can do to help, as well as adding things they can earn money for that are not done on a regular basis.
Give them choices or options, so they learn they can make their own decisions which will lead to them learning to make wise decisions, to think for themselves, become independent and able to take care of themselves.
When your child makes a mistake there needs to be a natural consequence, so they learn how to recuperate from that and that the world does not end when they make a poor choice. Just be sure the consequence fits the crime. For example, drawing on the wall means you lose your crayons for a week...stay out late with the car; you lose the car keys...etc.
Even those with disabilities can help in some way, it is just a matter of figuring out what they can do as opposed to what they cannot, as well as what they are good at.
Everyone is good at something, but learning this and feeling good about yourself always starts at home.
A strong home life builds a strong child and prepares them for school, dealing with others and the big wide world out there. Strong children become strong adults.
Strong adults love themselves. Those who love themselves do not have the need to depend upon, take advantage of or harm others or themselves.
So teach your children, build them up show them how to love themselves and others and you will change the world.
