Every time the little girl leaves the house, her mother offers her some important advice:
"Don't forget your crown."
The little girl hears these words often as she grows up. Her crown is a special gift -an invisible reminder that she is loved, special, and deserves to be treated with respect, just as she respects others.
In The Crown, author and child therapist Jami Stanforth introduces girls to the concept of self-worth and its importance throughout life. As the little girl in the story grows into a teenager, her mother provides gentle lessons she can use to navigate through the turbulent years of adolescence and into early adulthood.
Following this charmingly illustrated tale, Stanforth offers parents suggestions and practical tips for developing their own child's self-worth, which differs from self-esteem. Self-esteem is based on characteristics and criteria that can change and therefore, can fluctuate over time. Self-worth-the knowledge that you are special, lovable and worthy without having to do anything, be anything or achieve anything- can remain constant if taught and nurtured.
Help your daughter find her own crown. She'll wear it for the rest of her life.
