Low self-esteem in children
There are times when parents are responsible for the low self-esteem of our children, and it is not that we want it that way, but sometimes we do it unconsciously. Therefore, I will leave you some tips that you can put into practice so that you can stop lowering your children’s self-esteem, but rather strengthen it. Children develop low self-esteem when they do not feel well integrated into their family, instead they seek to belong to other environments that are not always the most appropriate. This brings them trouble in school as they do not have enough self-confidence to face the challenges.
To avoid this in your children, keep in mind the following tips:
1.DO NOT CRITICIZE THEM
If the child misbehaves, we should not tell him that he is a fool or that he is bad, since in that way what we will do is make the child believe that he really is it bad or dumb.
2.DON’T SCRAP THEM IN PUBLIC
If your child has a bad attitude in public, wait to get their attention in private and don’t scold him in front of others.
3.NEVER COMPARE IT
You should not compare your child with his brother, cousin or friend. Each one is unique and with their own talents.
4.YOUR PAST IS NOT THE FUTURE OF YOUR CHILDREN
Many parents justify themselves saying that this is how they were raised as children, but this is not right. Treating a child with violence only creates more violence. “You react to the blow but you learn with kisses.”
5.LOW SELF-ESTEEM IN PARENTS
Perhaps your child has low self-esteem because you have it, have you thought about that?
It is important to take this into account. A low self-esteem in children will cause them to develop poorly in the future and not be able to carry out any challenge or they will be afraid to face new opportunities for fear of failure. We must make them proud of their way of being and of their abilities.
