How to Build Self-Esteem in Your Child

Oct 01, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Self-confidence is an essential ingredient in the recipe for a rewarding life. Parents should make efforts to raise a confident child beginning right from toddlerhood. Children who lack confidence are reluctant to try new things and face challenges as they are scared of failing or disappointing others. 

Encouragement is very important for a child right from an early age. It not only motivates the child to continue making efforts but also to give his best shot. 

It is absolutely fine for a child to fail as they will learn from their mistakes and in future make efforts to steer through the obstacles.

  • Efforts should be praised and winning or losing should not matter.

  •  Let them learn how to solve a problem by themselves since childhood as parents' hard work will not pay them. 

  • Practice should play a key role as it makes the person perfect. 

  • Expectations should not be unrealistic as it can affect a child's confidence.

Ma'am I want to know how are self-esteem and self-confidence interrelated? Do we parents have a role in building a child's self-esteem or is it something he would develop by himself?
