Building Self-Esteem in Children and Teenagers

Healthy self-esteem is like a child's armor against the challenges of the world. Children and teens who know their strengths and weaknesses and feel good about themselves seem to have an easier time handling conflicts and resisting negative pressures.


This workshop will help you understand the difference between effective and ineffective praise and you will learn how to use the language of encouragement at home and/or in class to raise the self esteem in your children.


After attending this workshop, you will be able to 


  • Raise confident children with positive self worth

  • Differentiate between effective and ineffective praise

  • Use the language of encouragement at home and/or in class

  • Prevent your child from becoming a ‘praise junkie’
