“I hate the way I look” your child mutters turning away from the mirror in anger.
Or perhaps, “everyone is smarter than me” or “I’m no good at sports” or “I just can’t do anything right!”
The list goes on, and for children with low self-esteem, it’s a long one.
You try explaining to your child why they are wrong, you point out other people’s failings (after all, no one is perfect), you comfort them and help them find ways of improving, you even talk to their teachers… but nothing seems to help.
Your child’s confidence is in the pits and you don’t know what else to do.
It’s a heart-breaking situation for any parent and an incredibly disempowering one for your child.
Fortunately, it’s not an insurmountable one.
There are five powerful ways that you can help boost your child’s confidence and you can find them on Purpose Fairy where I am thrilled to be a guest blogger this week!
I’d love for you to stop by and check them out.
