About the episode

In this podcast episode, Dina and Dr. Rosina talked about child positivity. The conversation started when Rosina shared her personal experience with body positivity.

According to Dr. Rosina, when you catch yourself expressing something negative, stop and think positively as an exercise to improve body positivity. Do not allow yourself to have a negative mindset because it will be hard to make a positive change. And that it is essential to instill good habits for healthy mental and physical health.

Also, Dr. Rosina emphasized that parents need to help their children to be more self-referenced, not too busy praising their children and make their confidence depend on external praise, but coming from themselves instead.

In conclusion

Parents should build a strong foundation with their children because it has a great impact on their self-esteem. And it must be recognized that health and happiness do not depend on compliments but rather on how children feel about themselves.
