Advice from QT blogger, Danyelle Leafty

 Today we have another installment for my advice series celebrating the launch of 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids: The Ultimate Guide.

Today’s guest: The I-can’t-believe-I-get-to-call-her-my-dear-friend, QT Blogger  and amazing MG/YA author, Danyelle Leafty. Danyelle and I met online a year ago or so. She’s a CP, friend, talk-me-off-the-ledge confident and I am thrilled that she is here to share a little wisdom today.

 

Danyelle doesn’t exactly believe in fairies, but her skepticism hasn’t stopped an odd assortment of imaginary people from bullying her into writing their stories. This is the place in which she details her journey, talks about frogs, and harnesses the occasional dragon.

 Take it away Danyelle!

If I could give a child one piece of advice for life, it would be to learn how to love themselves–warts and all. I’m not talking about a Narcissus kind of love, because look where that got him: turned into a flower that was later eaten by a hippo. (They often leave that last part out. :p) I’m talking about learning to appreciate who you are and love yourself for that. Know that you are lovable. That we’re all imperfect and have things we need to improve, and that’s normal and okay. You have worth, and it’s important to learn how to see that. :)

 I love this one! So so much.

Want to share your own advice for kids? Leave it in the comments or snatch the jpg and do your own post. I’ll be doing giveaways on Fridays throughout the month, giving various book swag prizes. So leave a comment and let me know if you do your own post!

  7. Such a tough thing to learn, and something I’m still working on. But man, it’s so necessary. I hope my kids will learn this lesson at a much younger age than I did.

  8. Super advice Danielle. Kids can be so cruel to each other so they definitely need to remember this.
