By this age, your child begins developing self-esteem. This self-esteem is going to serve as the foundation for a healthy and psychologically positive future. And to ensure that you perfectly nurture your child's self-esteem, the best thing you can do is provide the little one with unconditional love.
What you need to know:
A child’s self-esteem will flourish when you give him abundance of love and devotion. So it’s not like, ‘Mummy will hate you if you don’t finish your breakfast,’ it’s more like, ‘Mummy will be sad if you don’t finish your meal.’
Your child should know that they are loved no matter what. Pay attention to your child and be a participant in their play activities. Meanwhile, teach limits and establish a few reasonable rules. At the same time, support healthy risks. For instance, if your child wants to try a different food, let him try it.
