Would You Still Love Me If… has a subtle way of:
Promoting self-esteem and self-confidence in children.
Helping parents and children to not “sweat the small stuff.”
Strengthening the unconditional love between a parent and a child.
Instilling a belief in children that all things are possible when you try.
Since self-confidence and self-esteem...
Are learned at a very young age, it is important that children grow up in an environment that promotes a sense of self-worth. To the extent that children develop a healthy sense of self-worth while they are growing up, this will directly contribute to a greater sense of self-esteem and self-confidence in their adult life.
This book mirrors LaGuardia’s philosophy… tell your children often, how much you love them, how special they are, and that all things are possible.
Would You Still Love Me If... teaches children how to handle ‘Plan B.’ It shows children how to be adaptable and go with the flow when the unexpected happens. The more adaptable people are, the greater chance they will have at success because success won’t be defined in only one way. Children who learn adaptability will see endless possibilities as they enter adulthood – a ‘glass half full’ [positive] mentality. They will see challenges as opportunities instead of roadblocks because they have the self-confidence to overcome those challenges.
You are learning something new. You can do great things when you work hard and believe in yourself.
Melissa P. of Tarrytown, NY says, “The story comes full circle at the end when the boy gives back to his mother in a way that you never expected. After my son and I got done reading this book, he turned to me and said, ‘Mommy, I will always be there for you too,’ and this put a tear in my eye.”
