Want to know some magical Ways to Improve Self–Esteem among your Children, read on:

  1. Skills: Learning new skills and gaining mastery over them are great ways to improve self-esteem in children. Give your children the opportunity to improve self-esteem by experiencing pride in their own achievements and by gaining mastery of new skills. Facilitate new explorations for your child.
  2. Let them Experience it: Children learn best when they know it for themselves – by their own experience. Against popular belief, boosting self-esteem by telling them “they are great kids” is no substitute for gaining this knowledge through their own personal experience. Confidence comes about through experience & Experience comes about by doing it yourself. Don’t do it for them – step back and allow your children the opportunity to get the experience for themselves & feel confident about the task.
  3. Treat well: Treat them the way you want to be treated. Just because they are kids, it doesn’t mean that they are to be controlled, scolded or commanded over. Would you like someone doing that with you?
  4. Problem–solving: Don’t solve all the problems for your child. Help him/ her learn problem–solving skills and let them believe that s/he can manage many things by himself/ herself. As parents, we want to protect our children from all the worldly pains and discomfort. However, no matter how hard we try, it is an impossible task. So, it’s better to stop worrying & let them face & overcome their life’s challenges, at least as much as possible.
  5. No Harsh Words: Never call your child stupid, dumb, moron, etc. This can leave lifelong scars on their hearts and self-esteem. Do not use such messages which cause irreparable damage to the self-esteem. For more on this, visit our blog post, “6 Messages that Damage Self–Esteem“.
  6. Give them time: Give them your full attentionTurn off the TV, drop the newspaper, lock your mobile and stop whatever you’re doing to listen when your child is talking to you.
  7. Let them speak: Allow your child to express themselves. Be patient when they’re talking and don’t keep saying “hurry up” and “get to the point” They may not be good communicators, but so were you at their age.
  8. Believe: Believe in your children, so that they can believe in themselves. Show them that you have faith in their abilities & that they are capable of achieving their goals.
  9. Support them: Assist them develop their skills and talents by supporting them in their interests. There’s nothing more important to them than seeing you having faith and believing that they can do it! Also avoid criticizing while supporting, as if you are doing any obligation to them.
