Developing Self-Esteem

Developing rituals with your child can help build your their self-esteem.

For example, your child might choose a story to read with you before bed or you might share something simple like a special saying or handshake with your child.

Think about something that you can create together that you can both understand. This can help your child to develop a sense of belonging, as they feel like they have a connection with someone.

Feeling connected helps boost self-esteem.

P.S. If you've seen the comments below and are wondering about the teacher who introduced the handshakes into his class, here it is 🙂

This seems so simple. It’s easy to forget how the little things can really be the big things with children. http://www.wheremysoulbelongs.com

Lovely strategy, Dominique. I heard recently from an acquaintance that she invited her kids into her personal life a bit by sharing how her husband had a job interview. it seemed like such a small gesture, but she explained that it was actually a grounding practice and helped the kids realize that their parents ARE human and even when the hubby didn’t get the job, it was an important lesson for all <3 http://mypixieblog.com

Thanks Charlotte – I think sharing stories can really help, especially ones that show kids you are human. I’ve found it a really effective strategy for building a connection in the classroom too!

I love this very much 🙂 Have you seen that video that went viral of the classroom teacher that had a specific handshake with each of his students? That’s gotta make them feel pretty great as they’re entering the classroom! http://eatteachblog.com
