Self-esteem is how we feel about ourselves, and our behavior clearly reflects those feelings. For example, a child or teen with high self-esteem will be able to:
- act independently
- assume responsibility
- take pride in his accomplishments
- tolerate frustration
- attempt new tasks and challenges
- handle positive and negative emotions
- offer assistance to others
On the other hand, a child with low self-esteem will:
-avoid trying new things
-feel unloved and unwanted
-blame others for his own shortcomings
-feel, or pretend to feel, emotionally indifferent
-be unable to tolerate a normal level of frustration
-put down his own talents and abilities
-be easily influenced
Parents, mentors and friends promote a child’s self-esteem. It isn’t a particularly difficult thing to do. If fact, most parents do it without even realizing that their words and actions have great impact on how their child or teenager feels about himself. Here are some suggestions to keep in mind, and outline some of the strategies we utilize in our classes!
