12 WAYS TO HELP CHILDREN BUILD THEIR SELF ESTEEM

  1. Reward children; give praise, a special privilege for a job well done.
  2. Take their ideas, emotions and feelings seriously.
  3. Define limits and rules clearly and enforce them, but allow latitude for children within limit.
  4. Be a good role model. Let children know that you feel good about yourself and that you can make mistakes too.
  5. Have reasonable expectations for children. Help them to set reachable goals so they can achieve success.
  6. Help children develop tolerance towards those with different values, backgrounds and norms. Point out other peoples strengths.
  7. Give children responsibility. They will feel useful and valued.
  8. Always be available. Give support when children need it.
  9. Show students that what they do is important to you. Talk with them about their activities and interests.
  10. Discuss problems without placing blame or commenting Child’s character. If children know there is a problem but don’t feel attacked, they are more likely to help look for a solution.
  11. Use phrases that build self confidence, such as “thank you” for helping etc and avoid phrases that hurt self esteem like “why are you so stupid?”
  12. Show that you care.
