 Building Self-Esteem in Children

 

 

Editor's Note from Debbie Allen: This video reminds us of the importance of using praise to help nurture self-esteem in children. Recent studies have also shown that its is important to praise children for effort rather than exclusively focusing on qualities. She reminds us that it's important to maintain a ratio of at least 6 positive statements for any one critical statement and cautions about criticizing in a way that can cause feelings of shame. Criticism should always be constructive and directed toward behavioral descriptions rather than being about the child's personality.
