The greatest gift we can give our children is to teach them to value themselves and to be able to approach life with confidence. This can be especially challenging for children touched by foster care or adoption.
Self-esteem is apparent in everything you do, from how you listen to new ideas and whether you’ll try something new, how you handle conversations, and how you see others, to the very essence that people perceive as you.
Topics we will cover include:
- Why self-esteem is important
- What causes low self-esteem
- How to encourage healthy self-esteem
- How to help your child manage negative self-talk
- How to teach your child to manage their feelings and be optimistic
- How to help your child make friends
- How to encourage your child to set goals and evaluate achievements
