    I love this! I’ve really been contemplating this subject myself lately. Personally, I feel that instilling a positive self-esteem in children is one of the very most important things we, as parents, can do for their older years when it all starts “mattering” to them.

    Thanks for a lovely post.

    Sincerely,
    Mallory

    I so agree! For years I was really hard on myself and always looked at the negative in my life. It took quite a bit of self care to turn my mindset around. I do think that it all transpired from childhood. These are really great tips on helping children build self esteem!

    Great reminders, sometimes as parents we tend to look at things they cannot do instead of focusing on what they can achieved on their own! Focus on the positif. Thank you

    As a Scout leader, I work with a lot of teens, mostly boys. They are so grateful just to have an duly who will talk to them and listen to them without demanding anything from them. I had one kid who’s merit badge session took two hours because he just wanted to talk and talk. I think that’s a huge self esteem builder for these kids to have the attention of an adult, regardless if it is a parent, a teacher, a Scout leader or whoever.

    Thank you for sharing this information. Building Self Esteem is important and I think with so much that is happening to tear down self esteem, it is important that parents and educators take an active effort in helping this to happen.
