I had a chat about respecting yourself and how to respect others.
IMO.... promoting self esteem means to allow the child the opportunity to succeed or to learn from his/her failures through guidance and by exposing the child to a variety of activities, people, situations, etc.
Self Esteem is NOT given but earned. You can not give your child self esteem... you can only help guide them. Reading about it doesnt give it. DOING and succeeding at something or learning from a mistake and correcting it next time will help a child with self esteem. You have to DO to feel. Reading about feeling good doesnt work.

what we have done.... we have exposed our kids to MANY sports, activities, etc... where they showed an interest we have found classes, teams, etc. We have shared in their accomplishments and have helped them problem solve when they failed. We have given them choices so that they can take responsibility and credit for when they succeed and for when they fail.... and we have stood beside them the whole way. WE have allowed THEM to earn what they have in life.
btw... they are in high school, both a son & a daughter
