Healthy Living Tip #280

Children learn beliefs and attitudes that affect their self-esteem from the time they are born. Self-esteem is a measure of how valuable we feel.

Help children develop a well-rounded self-concept that is based upon their unique interests, abilities, talents, and skills.

Encourage learning and participation in a variety of areas including school, sports or physical activity, personal interests, hobbies and clubs, community service and relationships.

Focus on children’s positive attributes, provide positive feedback and encouragement and show that you have confidence in them.
