Developing Self Esteem Our Children
Developing Self Esteem Our Children the world is slowly becoming a different place than we remember. Growing up used to be fun with all sorts of secure benefits given to us through our parents, the municipality’s handling of the local parks and the quite summer nights. (“How To Boost Your Self Esteem by Max Diamond – Issuu”) This is no longer the only reality that exists, as the media and peer pressure seem to have skyrocketed in the past ten years. Self-Esteem is truly the only line of defense any child has as they make their way into a broad, new world, and we are the ones that can learn this from.
While our children are young, they always mimic our every move. This is seen as cute and builds our self-esteem, however there is a certain age when a child needs to stop mimicking and begin living their own, individual life. We need to usher them into this, so they may never be left behind.
Of course, our goal as parents is to have our children grow to be mature individuals. This is the goal for anyone who has cared for somebody else! However, our natural instincts tell us that we need to hover over indeed, to completely protect our offspring to provide and caring shelter so they will not get hurt. These are the children that over overprotective parents, causing a real issue in the child’s perception of how life is lived, inhibiting their mental abilities needed for them to think for themselves.
So, we need to find a balance between raising our children for them to live as individuals yet protecting them through our love for them. By showing them how to live through displaying our own self-esteem can cause an incredible impact on their outlook on life.
Allow the kid to flourish and grow at his own pace and time. The biggest mistake you can do this may sound like a great strategy, however, for us to do this, we need to treat our children as if they already are individuals, not our property to protect. This is what causes them to begin to realize how life is lived through our examples and observing those who are older. The only way they can observe us is if they have a little distance to receive the full picture. Keeping them close, though it does protect them, does not train them as they need to be able to perceive the broader picture.
This is the case with all of life! Yes, nothing is worth living unless it is birthed through pain and trail. As parents, it might be more difficult for us to allow painful situations or disappointments to settle on a child than it is for the child to live through these moments. Even so, the parent should rarely step in and prevent these painful experiences, as it is through these experiences that they will grow and mature into the unique individual you desire them to be.
This will only train them to believe that they can manage difficulty situations on their own, and that they can do it confidently. This is one of the major benefits of having a high self-esteem: that you can move through each day and take on the day’s challenges as if no other day has existed. The reason this is important is due to their ability to take on the pain and the trail and move forward after defeating the issue without looking back. What an incredible ability!
As this article has tried to show that the parental roles in children’s lives are critical to their future’s stability, the importance is equally laid on the parents of never giving into their premature demands. To produce a child that is overly dependent on your every move is producing a child worthless to society. To produce a free thinker is to create an array of possibilities for the mature adult. This is how life needs to be lived.
