12 ways to raise a confident child

12 ways to raise a confident child. Read on >> www.karinecandicekong.com

We recently came back from skiing in Andorra and one thing I really enjoyed, was to witness the very special, close relationship Lily (11 years old) and Mila (10 years old) have developed since they were little and how they’ve grown into self-confident, caring and funny little human beings since we first took them skiing at the age of 4 and 5.

In my recent interview with Motherland, I said that the most challenging about motherhood is letting your child becoming the person they are meant to be and not a version of yourself or your tastes and to instil self-confidence in them. As I see the amount of bullying going on in school or online, more than ever, I feel it is important to help our children to be self-confident and have a healthy sense of who they are regardless of how they look so here are my two cents…

One of my favourite brands to dress Mila is BOBO CHOSES (available at Elias and Grace in the UK and Smallable in France). I’ve watched them growing from a small indie brand in 2008 into a beloved worldwide brand and each season, their collection fills me with joy and inspiration. I would love to style their collection once and I really wish they would do some of their sweatshirts for women too!

MILA’S VIDE-DRESSING: IG 04/01/2015 11am

Milasvidedressing

A few days ago, I was asked on Instagram how I kept our home uncluttered. The short answer is that I go through our things every month. I know that there is often a lot of emotions attached to the way we don’t let go things and that’s ok.

Yoga teaches you that if there is one posture you don’t want to do, that’s exactly the one you should be doing right now. I think it’s a bit the same with decluttering our personal space…the things we don’t want to let go are the things we need to let go so we can move on with our lives and address the emotions that tie us down.

One thing I do now (and it took me a while of getting used to the idea) is letting go of Mila‘s baby & toddler clothes because at the end of the day, she is growing up, she is becoming her own, beautiful person with a mind of her own, her own tastes (which means she will no longer wear the gorgeous Liberty tops her mum loves so much) and she won’t really care if I keep her baby clothes for 20 years. So letting go of her clothes I loved so much is a way of embracing that my kid is growing up and I need to go with the flow with her rather than looking back.

As such, I will be selling some of her things tomorrow on Instagram from 11am. All proceeds go into her bank account.
