Encouragement and praise go hand in hand when helping our youngsters to build their self-esteem...
Do you sometimes find yourself staring at others who are not typical in appearance? Do you often judge others based on what they are wearing, or their hair styles, or their choice in make-up? If the object of your staring is extremely obese or terribly anorexic, does it bring about uncomfortable feelings deep in your gut?
If you have answered any of these queries in the affirmative, then you are, unfortunately, a part of our society who puts way too much emphasis on outward appearance.
People who have well-developed self-esteems and who are comfortable in their own skin will have little problem ignoring such stares and taunts from others. However, how does one become so relaxed, so at ease, so confident in who they are?? Building self-esteem from childhood is definitely the key to having a happy and successful existence in our society- A society that places an excessive amount of significance on style, fashion, weight, and physical appearance.
What we should know about children and self-esteem is that it is an integral part of raising confident adults, competent employees willing to accept criticism from their bosses, and self-sufficient individuals who believe that they are capable of conquering the world, if they so desire!
Encouragement and praise go hand in hand when helping our youngsters to build their self-esteem.
The Bottom Line: Let us raise our children to believe in themselves... teach them from an early age that they can do and be whatever they set their minds to.. Self-esteem is the key!
