Positive feelings like self-acceptance or self-confidence help children try new challenges, accept their mistakes and try again.
If we believe in our children, they believe in themselves.
Operation Warm has made it their priority to allow every child to explore the outdoors even when the weather is too cold.
As we grew into toddlers and became more independent, the adults in our life allowed us to become our own person.
Operation Warm wants every child to have a chance at an education.
Our brand new coats give children the opportunity to get to school in harsh weather conditions.Before preschool or kindergarten, we learn things that we continue to use as we progress through life.Our parents taught us the values of life and the skills we needed to be truly successful.Children who share also learn how to take turns and negotiate, and how to cope with disappointment.” When we were taught to share, we learned to be respectful of others.Sharing encourages kind phrases like “please” and “thank you,” as well as other good manners that translate into adulthood. Children learn to wait until others are done talking to begin speaking and how to listen to their peers and adults.It was important that adults reached out to us as younger children in order to help us develop and understand the world.At a young age we were taught how to share and be respectful of others.When children feel confident about themselves and their abilities, they have higher self-esteem.A high self-esteem sets children up for success and a lifetime of happiness.Playing outside is one of the first ways the adults in our life encourage us to exercise.Spending free time exploring nature has a huge impact on a child’s health, according to journalist and author Richard Louv.
