How To Super-Boost Your Child's Self-Esteem
Do you want to be the kindest and most understanding parent you can be?
Do you want your children to be confident and have good self-esteem?
Have you ever wondered why it is that we fall in to the trap of being the parents we swore we would never be?
Well there are two main reasons.
1. Parenting is the hardest job we ever have to do and the one job we have no training in.
2. Parenting isn't easy. Kids will be kids. They can be demanding and a worry and under stress it's human nature to fall back into your comfort zone and do what your parents would have done to you.
The purpose of this audio recording by Dr Janet Hall, Clinical Psychologist, is to focus on understanding the nature of Self-Esteem, so that you the parent can best support your child to build a strong confident Self-Esteem which endures and lasts in spite of life's tough times.
Parents will learn:
How stress effects parenting,
How to offer self-esteem "damage control',
How to identify a 'toxic' parent,
How to help your child cope with failure and
You will learn that a good Self-Esteem doesn't rely on consistent successes.
Parents can't and shouldn't try to protect their children from upsets and learning experiences.
In fact, they grow in maturity and in Self-Esteem when they know they've put in their best effort even if they didn't succeed in the eyes of the external world.
The Three Key aspects of Self-Esteem are:
No. 1 Being Capable is about saying, "I can make a difference!" Even if it's just I can paint a lovely picture with a real paint brush and I'm four.
No. 2 Being Connected is simply belonging, "I Belong," and
No.3 Being Worthwhile is about knowing that, I'm O.K. no matter what.
So the key phrase for us to learn is, I'm Capable, I Belong and I'm O.K.
