                                   Nurture a Child’s Self Esteem to Teach Success
(January 21, 2015, St. Louis, MO) Self-esteem is the ingredient that gives the child the confidence that he will succeed. Without it, the child will be too fearful of failure, and thus not have the courage to take risks in order to succeed.
To nurture self-esteem, the child must feel accepted, and valued as a person. The rules at home are clearly defined, fair and depending on the circumstances, are negotiable. The child is not humiliated, manipulated and is respected for his dignity as a human being. He is challenged to be the best both behaviorally, academically and morally. Finally, the parents themselves have a high level of self esteem.
“Without a strong self-esteem, I would not have accomplished all that I have, “ writes Dr. Lord.
