When a child lacks a sense of belonging and significance, their self-esteem is threatened and they become discouraged.
A fun way to boost your child’s self esteem and actively work on your parent-child connection  is to spend some focused time listening to your child.
Asking children questions that focus on what is special to them can actively boost their self-esteem. So here are 25 questions you can ask your child to find out more about what their favorite moments have been this year.
If your child isn’t very chatty, I encourage you to ask just a few questions at a time.
A child’ self-worth and overall confidence can have a great impact on his progression throughout the various stages of development and maturation.
Our children can be seen as blank slates and we as adults representing the sum of their experiences contributing toward their internalization of “words they pick up” toward the completion of their tabula rasa.
Find the time to point out a good quality in the child daily, and reinforce for them their strengths so that they may be able to hear this positivity through repetition, become comfortable in their own skin, and be more eager to achieve more once they can see themselves through the eyes of the adults around them. Once the child has been taught this language and internal dialogue, they are ready to verbalize it with their own mouths. Joining of a club, group or positive extracurricular activity will have a direct effect on the children’s overall well being.
Via positive reinforcement, strength based therapy and promoting socialization along with several group activities, children can become the most productive, capable citizens they can be as opposed to engaging in a life of crime, recklessness and self-pity.


A fun interview to finish the year can be a great way to offer your child a chance to talk about themselves. As clinicians, parents, and teachers, it is essential to realize how much of a role we actually play in shaping the thriving of our youths. We must be extremely mindful of the words we use when speaking to their self concept, realizing that we are influencing them to write their internal dialogue and self talk from very early on.
These affirmations can have a tremendous effect, since it is difficult for children to formulate an opinion of themselves; they often rely upon the feedback they receive from adults around them and cues they take in from the environment, such as applause, smiles, and hugs.
Verbal insults of any kind can cause the child to retreat and think very low of themselves, causing them to take a completely different path than they may have originally taken.
This positive parental involvement can definitely exert a significant impact on the child as a whole, even in terms of interactions among peers. It will increase their self-esteem, social skills, and reduce their chances of depression and inclination toward substance abuse. We will strive to create an environment where they can grow, thrive and succeed by improving their self-worth, and giving them a sense of purpose and providing a safe, confidential forum in which to discuss their fears, feelings, hopes and dreams. Belonging and significance are two core components of feeling well and doing well (healthy and strong self-esteem). The answers can also help us understand our children more, and be an opportunity to reflect and notice how much our children have grown, and accomplished for themselves. Our precious children are constantly listening, paying attention and soaking up adult dialogue like a sponge and internalizing what is being transmitted to them.


No matter how small or insignificant it may seem to us, the child is constantly craving for the approval of elders, and phrases like, “Good Job!” “Well Done!” and “I am so proud of you!” can go a really long way and create the building blocks for a child’s self worth. Have the child write down their five best qualities and recite them daily, so as to ingrain their positive self image creating for resilience and confidence. Many organizations will also serve to provide a positive outlet for children to release their energy through sports and other social interactive activities.
Teachers and therapists must be aware of the language they use to boost a child in all instances so as to not harm them psychologically or emotionally in any way.
The language children are programmed to believe about themselves can create a self fulfilling prophecy for them and determine the overall outcome of the way they view their self worth. If children are to have a satisfying, fulfilling and productive future, their self- esteem must be protected and nurtured. We must remember that children are our most valuable assets; they represent our future, our society, and ultimately – the continuation of our human race.
