Fostering Self Esteem in the Child

One of the most crucial aspects of a child’s healthy growth is the formation of a good sense of self-worth. The ability of a kid to cope with failures, peer pressure, and other life difficulties is strongly influenced by their social, behavioral, and emotional health. Children may compare themselves to their classmates and peers at school. Children’s self-esteem is strongly linked to a variety of factors at this age, including how well they do academically, physically, and socially. Good CBSE schools strive towards overall development and wellbeing of students.

What is Self Esteem:

Self-esteem is the ability to appreciate and value oneself, to believe in one’s abilities, and to realize what one does well. As a result, it encourages children who may not like or be adept at certain activities to try them out in the face of adversity, rather than avoiding them out of fear of failure.

Why is it important to foster Self Esteem:

Children learn and develop when they attempt new things, confront problems, and bounce back. This is why self-esteem is such a vital aspect of a child’s growth.

Children are respected and behave on their own.

They are tenacious and proud of themselves even when they make a mistake.

They develop the fortitude to make sound judgments despite peer pressure.

A lack of self-confidence and a lack of self-advocacy skills may lead to feelings of frustration, anger, anxiety or depression, as well as a lack of enthusiasm in learning. These feelings can be alleviated by establishing strong self-advocacy abilities

How to foster Self Esteem:

Spend some additional time with your child after school to show them how much you care.

. Pay attention to how hard your kid works and how brave he or she is in trying new things.

When things don’t go according to plan, encourage your youngster to try again. Your child’s resilience will be strengthened as a result.

Try offering a huge grin when you wish to join in, may help. As long as you’re smiling, you’ll attract the attention of others.

Establish open lines of communication between school and home by asking the teacher about your child’s progress. It’s also a good idea to be engaged in your child’s academics and homework if you can.
