Are you more of a “glass is half-full” or a “glass is half-empty” type of person?
We all know how powerful positive thinking can be. It can improve your self-esteem, help you manage stress better, more easily overcome life’s challenges. If life gives you lemons, make a lemonade kind of situation. It can even improve your overall health. All those benefits relate to kids even more, because they are at the beginning of developing their personalities.
Children with positive perceptions of themselves are focused on positive results and are not discouraged by the lack of success. They tend to have the best social and academic results.
What can you do to help your child develop positive self-esteem?
Always react positively to them and their achievements and help them get in control of negative events. Be the one that will improve your child's positive thinking skills. Lead by example, show them that by changing your thinking and your attitude you can control your emotions and your actions.
Positive talk and self-talk
