Self Esteem

How we think about ourselves, self esteem, and whether we find value in our selves, translates into how we teach, show and mirror these qualities to and for our children.

Our ability to parent our children well is relative to our ability to 'parent' ourselves.

self esteem The business of becoming a parent often opens us up to a better understanding of our personal shortcomings.

Nowadays there is an abundance of help available to us to help us recognize, understand and make the changes necessary for greater emotional maturity.

There are many websites like this one, many hundreds of books have been written about this field of self esteem, and many courses and classes are available to encourage and equip you to change. None of them are hard to find.

Indeed, we all know that the very first step forward - the decision to seek help, is the hardest step of all to make.

I hope these articles will encourage you.

Read about Self Esteem:

  • Ways to Improve Self Esteem
    Self Esteem is the opinion you have of yourself and your value as a person, with self confidence also a factor.

    Robert Louis Stevenson -
    The body is a house of many windows: there we all sit, showing ourselves and crying on the passers-by to come and love us.

  • Low self esteem
    As a parent we all want our children to have friends and respond well to others. It greatly boosts a child's low self esteem to be singled out and made to feel special by one parent or the other.

    Roscoe Snowden -
    There are at least two kinds of cowards. One kind always lives with himself, afraid to face the world. The other kind lives with the world, afraid to face himself.

  • Self Confidence
    Parents with a lack of self confidence can often unwittingly project their negative self worth onto their children. Conversely, confident parents tend to raise confident children.

    Agnes Repplier -
    It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.

  • Self Respect
    We like ourselves because of who we are and not because of what we can or cannot do.

    Joe Clark -
    Self-respect permeates every aspect of your life.

  • consistent parenting advice Positive Self Talk
    Self talk includes both the positive and negative messages that make up our inner dialogue of thoughts. Positive self talk can change attitudes from despair to hope and provide courage and optimism in place of negativity even in adverse circumstances.

  • Self Pity
    To experience self pity is to feel sorry for yourself. Self pity tends to be stultifying and inactive and can be likened to being caught in quicksand.

    Elizabeth Elliot -
    Self-pity is a sinkhole from which no rescuing hand can drag you because you have chosen to sink.

  • Self Image
    A healthy self image is not the result of achievements, but rather an inner knowing of being valued and accepted for who you are not what you do - knowing you are seen, recognized, valued and heard.

    Confucius -
    And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

  • Self Control
    Self control refers to having power or control over your own actions. Gaining and having control of yourself creates greater self esteem and a stronger self image. How do we teach our children this?

    Buddha -
    It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.
