5 ways to help your child with low self-esteem have more self-confidence
Rejection, criticism, made of a person, are what make them feel or value themselves less. Children can also be prone to losing self-esteem and becoming insecure about themselves, and parents should always be there for them, to raise them and make them feel more confident. No matter how stubborn and inconsolable they are, here are some things you can do to help your insecure child and make him or her safer in life.
Find the cause of their insecurity, offer help
Parents need to communicate with their children about everything. In the case of a child who has low self-esteem becomes even more important. Only when you have conversations will you be able to find the source of their insecurity. Once you do that, you can offer to help them, improve their problem-solving skills, and even find different ways to help them have more self-confidence.
Teach them to love themselves
No matter how many mistakes your child makes, guide them through the process and tell them what they can learn from each of these mistakes. Do not let them "drown" in self-pity and guilt, which can contribute to their insecurity. Teach them how to love themselves and do not let criticism, negative emotions and comments from people negatively affect them.
Check their movements on social media
With the digital world invading our lives, social media platforms can be a major contributing factor to your child’s insecurity. Whether in the form of critical comments or negative judgments, your child may be affected by any of these things. That said, make sure you know what is going on in their personal and social lives. However, in a limited way do not overdo it.
Make sure you are polite to them
A good parent never uses harsh words despite the mistakes their child may make. When it comes to a child with low self-esteem, being critical of it is what burdens the mind the most. Instead of using unproductive, cruel ways of parenting, acknowledge their efforts and push them to be better.
Build a safe and loving home space
The best way to help your child overcome his insecure nature is to create a safe and loving space for them at home. Do not burden them with the challenges you face as parents, rather protect them from all negative energies. As you make them aware of the realities of the world and prepare them for future challenges, be compassionate toward them as well.
