Helping Your Child Develop Positive Self-Esteem!

Parents, you play the biggest role in shaping children’s self-esteem. When children are young, their families are their main source of feedback. Some helpful tips are:

- Show interest in your child’s activities, projects, and problems!

- Let your child know he/she is loved and wanted.

- Set a good example by not excessively criticizing yourself.
