Feeling Is Healing: A Book of Affirmations for Children and the Child in Us
By: Hailey Smith
About the Book
Feeling Is Healing is filled with simple affirmations to say to our children—and ourselves! —to help normalize self-love and positivity. As parents and guardians, our obligations are to create a healthy internal monologue for our children, starting at a young age and carrying it with them throughout their life. With these simple affirmations, the hope is to decrease depression in children and reduce the need for approval from others and feelings of unworthiness. With these little reminders, adults and children alike will walk away feeling an increased sense of self-worth and respect for themselves and aid them in whatever difficulties may lie ahead.
