    What I Tell Myself FIRST by Michael A Brown is a straight up conversation starter with children intended to help them affirm the process of growing up This book teaches children that they don t have to be perfect or liked by everyone else to be okay It encourages them to like themselves and to help others Teaching children that it is good to perfect what they are good at, work hard at what they are not good at and either get better or do something else frees kids from expectations that the What I Tell Myself FIRST by Michael A Brown is a straight up conversation starter with children intended to help them affirm the process of growing up This book teaches children that they don t have to be perfect or liked by everyone else to be okay It encourages them to like themselves and to help others Teaching children that it is good to perfect what they are good at, work hard at what they are not good at and either get better or do something else frees kids from expectations that they have to be great at everything Lessons such as how to earn respect and why respect is important are addressed What I Tell Myself FIRST by Michael A Brown encourages a refreshing conversation of healing and hope for the children of the 20s.Opinion Overall, I found the book What I Tell Myself FIRST to be a frank and healing conversation starter about self esteem A few of the lines disturbed me, especially when I read them from a child s black white perspective I found myself arguing with some of the affirmations I imagine that while writing this book, the author summed up some of the affirmations he discussed with his children and friends, but some of the deeper conversations behind the affirmations were intentionally left out to encourage conversations between the adult and the child reading this book I imagine that the connection to a child s spirituality was intentionally left out to maintain inclusivity This leaves room for discussion on many levels I recommend this book for any age as long as an adult is close by, coaching an open conversation while reading with the child to affirm the affirmations Kudos to author Michael A Brown for using his voice to open the conversation for children learning to own themselves and to be proud of who they are becoming

    Great Advice for Kids and Adults I must be selfish before I am selfless.I am no good to anyone else, if I am not good to myself.Work equals worth.Respect is earned when I give respect It s not too bold a statement to say that we should all practice the wisdom in this book We re we all to do so, most of the toxicity in our culture would vanish Great book Great job by this author for speaking truth to youth

    I cant even express how amazing this book is I wanted to cry after reading it to her i try to instill these values everyday with my daughter, but to be able to read this to her in a way she can try to understand was amazing This world can be very cruel sometimes and very judgemental but i never want her to feel like she needs to be a certain way or needs to make others feel a certain way about her Hands down the very best book ever
