Building Self Esteem in Girls Easily & Effectively—
Building a healthy sense of self-esteem in kids during childhood is key to a happy and success-filled life.
You probably already know this. But do you know that extensive studies show that only 15% of us have sufficient self-esteem to achieve our dreams?
Before I disclose some useful tips for building self-esteem in your special girl (daughter, niece, grand-daughter or friend…), I want to share some important information that’s essential to fully understanding self-esteem.
First – Self-esteem fluctuates throughout our lifetime.
Second – Building and improving self-esteem takes time.
Third –Maintaining self-esteem requires daily attention.
As you can see, healthy self-esteem is an on-going and luscious journey!
What it Means to Build Healthy Self-Esteem in a Girl
FACT! Self-Esteem is an ongoing journey, therefore daily action is required to build and improve one’s self-esteem.
Building and improving self-esteem is a life skill that is all about self-care and that is very similar to body care.
You already know that in order to keep our bodies in good shape we must take daily actions. Bathing, grooming, eating, exercising and relaxing are all example of essential body-care actions.
To easily teach a child the essential life skill of maintaining healthy self-esteem I suggest using small persistent actions.
These are simple daily actions that overtime become habits, just as brushing one’s teeth or combing one’s hair are self-care habits we learn.
