Let’s take a look at the importance of good self esteem…
A child with a good self-esteem will generally feel accepted, connected, unique, powerful, and capable. Negative self-esteem can lead to insecurity, tension, anxiety, poor relationships, a lack of motivation and the feeling of “I can’t”.
Very often children with ADHD or barriers to learning will experience a low self-esteem. Although they try just as hard as any other child to learn, they constantly don’t succeed and experience failure more often. It is therefore very important to sort out barriers to learning, before they have a negative impact on your child’s self-esteem.
Does your child suffer from low self-esteem? Children with low self-esteem will:
- Constantly communicate self-derogatory statements.
- Exhibit helplessness towards learning – saying, “I can’t” without trying.
- Not volunteer to do things / get involved in activities.
- Practice perfectionism.
- Be over-dependent.
- Demonstrate an excessive need for acceptance.
- Have difficulty making decisions
- Exhibit low frustration tolerance.
