Activities Building Self-Esteem Children

Activities Building Self-Esteem Children when bringing up a child, one of the biggest concerns that face parents is their child’s Self-concept and Self-Esteem. Parents must try to find a balance when teaching their children how to value themselves and their natural abilities; allowing them enough independence to grow and learn to make their own decisions, whilst at the same time guiding them on the right path. This gives them Self-Esteem. (“Boosting Self-esteem in Kids – 3 Self-esteem Building …”)

Allowing your child too much freedom can make them rebellious as they get older, whilst if you are overly strict this can lead them to losing their independence and self-confidence, which may lead to dependency on others. They may not be able to face the big, wide world on their own which is what any parent would wish to avoid – a child that is too clingy. (“Boosting Self-esteem in Kids – 3 Self-esteem Building …”)

“Anyone can develop Self-Esteem at any age but encouraging your child to learn from an early age and praising their individual talents, will help to build their trust in their own decision making, as they grow in confidence and learn to recognize their own natural gifts – a step towards building their Self-Esteem.” (“wtwtwew”)

Self-Affirming Statements

Stand facing a mirror, telling yourself what a great person you are; this may seem childish, but for a child, it is a great, fun way to boost their Self-Esteem as well as yours – try it! You do not have to stick to the mirror process but make up your own words of ‘Self-Affirming Statements’. Remember to stick to these basics and you should do fine. (“Boosting Self-esteem in Kids – 3 Self-esteem Building …”)

Create mantras that a child can remember easily. Each morning, start by saying the mantra to your child, and have them repeat it back to you so that it becomes their mantra. They do not have to be statements about yourself, they could be about each other, such as, “I love you”, or statements about complimenting each other. (“Boosting Self-esteem in Kids – 3 Self-esteem Building …”) The mantras can vary if the essence is on ‘affirming oneself’.

The Positive Trait Game

The Positive Trait Game is an activity that boosts Self-Esteem as well as helping to increase your child’s vocabulary. The game involves telling each other a Positive Trait that you can see in the other, by using a word – only the key point of the game involves thinking of a word that begins with a specific letter of the alphabet. The child learns by picking up unfamiliar words that they have not come across and understanding their meaning for future use – they are increasing their vocabulary.

This encourages your child to think positively about themselves; to acknowledge and recognize their own unique traits and talents. They will grow up knowing where their strengths lie. (“wtwtwew”)
