Take the time to let your kids know that THEY MATTER and the things that they do and how they behave MATTER!
Kids who feel good about themselves have the confidence to try new things. They are more likely to try their best, and they feel proud of what they can do. Self-esteem helps kids cope with mistakes and helps kids try again, even if they fail at first. As a result, it is known that a positive self-esteem helps kids do better at school, at home, and with friends.
Kids with low self-esteem feel unsure of themselves. If they think others won't accept them, they may not join in. They may let others treat them poorly and they may have a hard time standing up for themselves. These kids may give up easily, or not try at all. Kids with low self-esteem find it hard to cope when they make a mistake, lose, or fail. As a result, they may not do as well as they could.
When kids have self-esteem, they feel confident, capable, and accepted for who they are. The image below are just some of the things we can do as parents to help kids feel good about themselves. Bottom line....self-esteem grows when kids get to see that what they do matters to others.
Help prepare your kids for the positive mark they can have on this world!
