How do you boost your daughter's self-esteem?

 Personally, I tell my daughter that I think she's beautiful, that I love her, how smart I think she is, etc, on a daily basis. 

Thankfully, I feel like she does have a healthy self-esteem.  She's not afraid to be who she wants, dress how she likes, wear her hair differently from the way her friends wear theirs.  And, she's not afraid to stand up for what she believes in or stand up for others when she sees bullying taking place.

I teach my DD reason, critical thinking, and how to maintain a rational state of thinking. I feel it's only way to construct healthy self-esteem is to help our daughter be reality-driven.

I remind my daughter of all her good qualities not just about looks.

I encourage my daughter to watch how she self talks. ( I can't, I'm no ggod at this, negative self talk), instead to turn it around into a positive statement. 

It sounds silly but i encourage her to stand straight and not slouch.- when you stand tall you exude confidence. I believe if you walk around hunched over and dragging you are probably having negative feelings/ thoughts

She feels good about herself when she is involved, so I try to keep her involved in things she likes(sports, art, dance).

We have helped her to be empowered & assertive. We encourage her. We support her. We love her unconditionally, but we do hold her accountable.

I encourage her to be herself, love herself. Her self-esteem is healthy.

We tell our girls the same daily. They always feel confident in themselves. We like to think at least a little bit of our words are rubbing off :)
