  • Listening With My Heart: A Story of Kindness and Self-compassion

    Listening With My Heart: A Story of Kindness and Self-compassion

    Garcia, Gabi

    "In today's hypercompetitive world, kids often internalize the message that their worth is attached to their accomplishments and that messing up is something to be ashamed of, rather than a normal part of life, which can lead to critical self-talk. Listening with My Heart reminds us of the other golden rule--to treat ourselves like we would treat a friend. When we do this, we are practicing self-compassion."--
