Feeling unconditionally loved and capable in the world; Having a confidence and satisfaction in oneself… pride and belief in one’s self
It seems so straightforward, but how many parents truly love their children unconditionally…..without conditions? How do we, as parents, get our children to feel that unconditional love? And how do we make sure our children feel capable in the world? That brings us back to the original question, “How can I give my child self-esteem?” Simple answer: We can’t. We can’t GIVE our children self-esteem. All we can do is give our children opportunities to build their self-esteem…..to build the feeling of being loved and build the feeling of feeling capable.
