One of the ways that we can really help our children develop self-esteem is by helping them see the value of their experiences and accomplishments. When they look at these each day, they begin to see how their abilities and personal strengths shape their world.
By helping our children count their win or wins for the day, they have the chance to enjoy the fun of each day, in addition to evaluating and learning from some of the things that might not have seemed very pleasant. This can be such a great exercise for all family members. Try it at the dinner table each night or just before you head the kids off to bed. Help them see the good that is in their lives and they will be more apt to share that goodness with others through care and kindness.
