The Key to Building Your Child’s Self-Esteem

Building Your Child's Self-Esteem

As parents, we want our kids to grow up to be happy, healthy and confident adults.

So, what role do we play in helping build our child’s self-esteem?

It boils down to two very important ingredients, according to Kids in the House.

In fact, you can judge every interaction with your child with these two criteria.

I can look back and say that I was blessed to be loved unconditionally by my parents.

School and being a top performer just came naturally to my older sister…

I, on the other hand, had to work a lot harder at it, and was much more interested in writing.

My parents always nurtured and encouraged our different gifts unconditionally, and it truly made all the difference.

I grew up knowing that I was loved for being the person I am, and was competent to be successful with the gifts I have been given.

    I need help with a grandchild who feels abandomed by separated parents. She is not social at school, has dyslexia and is very sad.
    Anything I can I do, but don’t know really how to help her, except love her. Please advise

    Barbara she’s lucky to have a grandma that’s so concerned. I have a step son who was abandoned by his biological mom. I always tell him how glad I get to be his mommy….we celebrate that day. And I tell him that its her not wanting the responsibility of being a parent so he doesn’t think his fault.
