Yesterday – at an online consultation – a very worried mother asked me –
“How can I build my child’s self-esteem?”
“He is such a talented child – but he does not believe in his abilities.”
In my practice as parenting consultant – I constantly meet children with low self-esteem – and I put this down to these children not being taught how to be KIND
The easiest way to feel good about yourself – the easiest way to feel that you are better than someone else is
To be KIND
To be INCLUSIVE
As soon as you look at someone with kindness – with empathy – with the desire to help and to include – you start feeling
GOOD – in fact - you start feeling GREAT.
We have stopped teaching our children these qualities – and that is why – despite being storehouses of information – they do
not have the self-esteem to plunge into action.
In this article I write about how inclusion benefits us.
