In order to boost your child’s sense of self-value and positive perception, you should show them that you have a strong worth. Talk about yourself with enthusiasm and highlight what makes you great! This will teach children it is okay to be proud and happy for their talents, skills, and abilities.
It is important to show your child that you notice all of their good deeds by praising them as a parent. Each day as they complete assigned tasks or chores for the household, be sure to tell them how much those actions merit praise from family members.
When a child is sad, angry or depressed, communicate with them. Listen to their concerns without judging or criticizing, and make sure the door of communication stays open, so they know you’re there for him/her if another problem arises in which he needs help sorting through it. Suggest positive behaviours as solutions and leave that discussion on good terms knowing your kid will talk to you about something like this again when needed
When teaching your child the importance of setting goals and developing a plan to meet that goal, it’s best to start off with small projects. Ensure that this is an appropriate task for them by not making it too complex at first. Don’t only praise their accomplishments once they finish but also during the project as well so they can stay motivated throughout
The most important thing to do is tell your child “I love you” every day – many times throughout the day, in fact. When they’ve misbehaved, remind yourself that it’s not them you don’t like, only their behaviour. Tuck short, sweet notes into lunchboxes or coat pockets or even send a card in the mail soon. They’ll learn to say I love you just as easily and honestly back.”
