Does Your Child Have High Self-Esteem?


Parenting Thought:
Two things your child must believe equally to have high self-esteem:
  1. He is worthwhile and cared about – because he is who he is, not just because of the things he does well;
  2. She can do things well, including follow rules.
You can help your child believe.

"Many of the things we talk about are just as much about you, the reader, as they are about your child."

Winter’s Picture Books

We have been amazed at how much good parenting information is in children’s picture books – books that we hope you are reading everyday to the children in your lives – your own, your class, those you take care of.  For each book, we are noting there is something in it to remind you of how to be the parent you want to be.
What’s in it for you, the reader?
A reminder of how important self-esteem is for your children.
What’s in it for you, the reader?
A reminder that babies start making decisions about themselves and the world around them from the moment they are born (if not before).
What’s in it for you, the reader?
A reminder that natural consequences are powerful. See for more about natural consequences.
What’s in it for you, the reader?
A reminder that your child has a star within him. You can help it shine.
What’s in it for you, the reader?
A reminder that you can help your child with sad and frustrated feelings when they can’t have everything they want.
