Self-Esteem Elephant is here to say: "BE PROUD OF YOURSELF" each and every day. How do you do this? How do you teach your children to be confident and have self-esteem in who they are, what they do, how they carry themselves? Self-Esteem Elephant has helped build confidence in our children for years, through literacy, through communication and through art.
We hope you talk with your child about self-esteem. This Resource Book has simple ideas to teach them:
1. To be proud of who they are
2. That when they have a talent, and, no doubt that they do, share it with others, they'll learn more about you
3. That a smile goes a long way
4. To believe in themselves
Ask your children what they like about who they are?! It may be the first time anyone has and their answers may surprise you! When I was teaching kindergarten I did an activity with the students and they added to the project to build upon who they are and what they liked about themselves. An activity that parents were appreciative of. As an adult, we've come to know the emotions of who we are, what we're good at, where we struggle. When we can build up our children to have confidence and self-esteem, the doors will open!
It's important to engage children in various activities, even if they feel that they're not good enough at them. For example, reading and writing. Or, athletics, art or cooking. We need to let them know that it's part of learning, to keep practicing, be encouraging to them so they want to try things and know what it feels like to be proud of their accomplishments and how far they've come because the had confidence in doing the task at hand. Encourage, Engage and Empower your in good character. This will help them grow and learn through childhood and into their adult lives as well. Here is a youtube video of me, Miss Joni making a paper bag puppet. Be sure to check out our Character Corner for more character building activities! Your child might like to join in!
