Children who like themselves develop the confidence to try new things. The greater your child’s self-esteem, the more willing they will be to try something new and continue without giving up. It’s a skill that increases your child’s success in school and in life! When you celebrate the things that make your child special, you help increase their confidence.
- Praise your child for trying new things even if they do not succeed at the start. Be positive and patient.
- When praising your child begin your statement with “I like…”. Keep the praise specific and truthful.
