Empowering Children: Developing healthy self-esteem

Every parent wants their children to develop healthy self-esteem. Building a positive sense of self supports a child’s physical, social and psychological wellbeing. Unfortunately, life’s challenges and harmful social media interactions have contributed to many children having low self-esteem – which can have a detrimental impact on their future life experiences, social interactions and sense of self-worth. 

In this session, parents and carers learn: 

● What self-esteem actually is
● How healthy self-esteem supports physical and psychological wellbeing
● Whether self-esteem and self-confidence are interchangeable
● What harms self-esteem 
● Practical strategies to build healthy self-esteem 
● Question and answer session

By attending this session parents and carers will come to understand factors that can harm a child’s self-esteem and learn practical approaches to supporting children to develop self-acceptance and healthy self-esteem to give children a strong foundation for life success.

Empowering Children: Developing healthy self-esteem will be held at 1pm on Wednesday 19 June 2024
