Let Them Help
Help develop your child’s self-esteem by letting them help you with things you are doing around the house.
For example, if you are making a cake, let them mix the batter or get the eggs out of the fridge. If you are hanging up the washing, ask them to pass you the pegs as you put the clothes on the line.
Make sure you acknowledge that they have helped and let them know you appreciate their help, by explaining to them how they have contributed.
"Thank you for helping me hang out the washing, it is much quicker when you pass the pegs to me, which means we can get everyone’s clothes dry and ready for them faster."
Making your child feel like their contributions are worthwhile and help others can help to develop their sense of self-esteem.
