Developing Self-Esteem in Children

Self-esteem is such a critical element in the development of children’s confidence, security, and joy in tackling the hard task of growing up. As important adults in our children’s lives, we help shape the way our children feel about themselves. Take a look at this article from KidsHealth for more ideas about how you can make a difference in developing a child’s self-esteem. Remember, “The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice” (Peggy O’Mara).
