Tips to develop self esteem in your child
- Let the child be part of making rules at home. That will make them feel good and thus they will find it interesting and will try more to live by the rules.
- Let the child feel he is important. Let the child participate in making decisions on what grocery to buy or what to cook today.
- Each child is important and have different skills. If your child feel inferior to someone else, talk about some other field in which your child is better than others.
- Do not compare your child with other children.
- Set goals which can be achieved. Appreciate when they achieve the goals. Help them achieve the goal if they feel difficulty.
- Show them that you are interested in what they do. Never make fun of their work, even if you feel it is not great. Your child should never feel shy to show you what they did.
- Avoid praising the child, but appreciate the good "thing" they did. It is better to say "I like the way you helped us clean the house", rather than saying "you are smart".
- Give responsibilities to the child. Even if it is easier to do things yourself, let your child do tasks appropriate for his age. Let him do mistakes and learn from the them. Do not interfere at each stage of the work. Let the child make choices and take decisions. Interfere with his work only when he is doing something destructive or dangerous.
- If your child feels he can't do something that is appropriate for his age, do not do it for him. Instead, let him try it several times until he succeed. That will make him proud.
- Listen your child. When your child is talking, stop everything else you are doing and focus on what he need to share with you. That will make him feel he is important.
- Make your child respect others. When your child compare himself with others, let him know that he is good at something and the other child could be important at something else. Let him learn everybody is important.
- Teach your child to be helpful. Children at each age can do something at home like making beds, bringing cloths to the washing machine, arranging books in the shelf etc. By taking his help, you are teaching him responsibilities, as well as making him feel he is important and useful in the family.
These methods are sure shots to bloom self esteem and self dignity in children thus making them confident about themselves.Let your child face the world with all the dignity making you proud about them.
