Self-esteem should be developed during childhood

Self-esteem should be developed during childhood

Educating and training a child are challenging tasks. First-time parents or couples who have had the experience of having their first child are tested daily. Do not just take care of the basics, like feeding, changing diapers, teaching the first steps and words. You need more. Among the wealth of care there are those who demand more resilience, such as making the child gain self-esteem. Apparently the mission is not even so goofy. But making a child confident to take risks and developing security to believe in one's own ability, knowing how to accept failure, demands a lot from the parents. "It is over the years that children learn the skills required by our society," says psychologist Renata Ayub.

According to the professional, if a child is not encouraged to develop skills like these, they can grow with a distorted view of their abilities. "In the future, she will probably have a hard time accepting frustrations and believing she is not good enough."

Building a child's self-esteem
A child needs praise to build self-esteem. However, many parents sin by restricting only this detail. "Dedication to understanding the child is still the best way to make it grow in a healthy way," says Renata. According to the professional, listening to the child and seeking to understand their needs is recommended. However, the warning about the fine line between understanding and lack of boundaries soon appears. Parents must (and should) set limits on children.

The most appropriate way to do this is to avoid over-criticism and to value logical explanation. "Severe criticism can leave sequels and deep traumas, after all, the first notions of children's self-esteem are the looks parents have under them," the therapist warns. Over-care can be devastating in adulthood. Children should learn from an early age how to handle frustrations. If they skip this step, the chances of perpetuating fragility in the face of difficulties are enormous. "It is extremely difficult for a father to see his son in a situation of discomfort. At the same time, it is equally risky to spare them difficulties," she says. "If the child is overprotected, he or she will never accumulate experiences and will have little repertoire to know if he or she is positioned."

Avoid trauma

Leave the children making mistakes can be healthy. Anticipating a child's choice limits her choices and she will certainly not be able to deal with frustrations, as she has always had parental support in situations in which she should act and think for herself. Stimulating courage, avoiding comparisons with other children and praising is always recommended. As well as keeping an open dialogue, giving attention to their dilemmas (as common as they seem) also favor the development of child self-esteem.

Social networks make you afraid to be out?

The world today is composed of the meeting of the face-to-face and virtual world. There are few people who still resist and are not part of the digital world. However, people are not always able to balance actions and some fall into the world of the internet. Some people feel inadequate and undecided to see updates from other people on social networks.
