Well I do tell my children frequently to ignore wayward criticism. I remind them often that they have a right to their own life, and to be happy, and never to change how they live to please someone that means nothing to them.

In this sense we do equip them to express their thick-skinnedness.

Everyone has an opinion about our lives. Few of these matter.
