FAQ

Dating and Relationships

 

Self-esteem is...

  • how we see ourselves

  • how we feel about ourselves

  • how much we value ourselves



Children with healthy self-esteem...

  • do better in school

  • are more willing to try new things

  • are happier

  • are healthier


It's easier to build healthy self-esteem in your children from the beginning than it is to rebuild it.

But it's possible to build self-esteem at any age.

  • Children have the best chance to have a healthy identity and strong sense of self-worth when their parents possess healthy self-esteem, model it, and want to instill this quality in their children.

  • Not every parent has been fortunate enough to have had role models with healthy self-esteem. Strengthening self-esteem for adults can help you get started.

  • Building self-esteem in your children is connected to how you discipline, set limits and let your children know what you expect of them. A parenting style that builds self-esteem is not about perfection - neither for you, nor for your child.

When you guide your children to develop healthy self-esteem you are giving them a strong base, lasting personal skills and roots and wings for coping with life. You make a difference.




Healthy Self-Esteem in Relationships

Relationships with family and friends can be both a great source of joy and a great source of stress.

Healthy self-esteem gives you a solid starting position for developing healthy relationships, and makes you a positive role model for others. A sense of humour is a must. And effective communication skills can really make a difference.

  • Decide what's important in your relationships

  • Express your needs clearly with self-respect and respect for others

  • Be encouraging to others, yet truthful when you feel angry

  • Recognize if your relationship is unhealthy

  • Do your best handling pressure and get help if you need it

  • Learn to negotiate differences
