Self-esteem is your child’s key to mental health and social happiness. It’s the foundation of his well-being and a stepping stone to success as an adult.
What you need to know:
At this age, how your child feels about himself affects how he acts. Make your child feel confident. You raise a confident child by focusing your attention on him during play. If your body is with your child but your mind is at work, your child will sense that you have turned out, and neither one of you benefits from the time together. Your child loses the value of your spent time, concluding that he is not important. You lose the opportunity to learn about your child and to relearn how to play.
