Step 4: Build My Self-Esteem

It’s more than just words. We can build a child’s self-esteem through praise, encouragement, and positive experiences. Children need to hear that we believe in them and that they can be whatever they want to be. Give your child opportunities to succeed at new tasks and develop skills. From praising your child for sharing a toy with another child to teaching them how to climb up the stairs, your encouraging words can boost your child’s confidence and ability to face challenges.
