Children need to always feel good about themselves because it is one of the key things that sets them up for success, ranging from school to friendships. Positive feelings like self acceptance or self-confidence makes children try new challenges, cope with mistakes, try again. And also, taking pride in their abilities and accomplishments, helps them do their best. Children with low self-esteem often feel unsure of themselves, thinking others won’t accept them and then allow themselves to be treated poorly and have a hard time standing up for what they believe because low self-esteem deprives them of knowing their potentials and coming out of their shells. How Self-Esteem Develops
Self-esteem does not come by telling children they are wonderful, special, and great., like most people think. But actually, self-esteem is the result of experiences that helps a child feel capable, effective, and accepted.
When kids learn to do things for themselves and feel proud of what they can do, they feel ‘capable’.
Children feel ‘effective’ when they see that good things come from efforts like trying hard, getting close to a goal, or making progress.When children feel ‘accepted’ and understood by a parent or someone close, they are likely to accept themselves,as well . Their good feelings about themselves multiply as parents praise good behaviours, help when needed, and give encouragement and support.Photo Credit: Getty
