Healthy self-esteem comes from being successful – at least in one, or more, areas of life.  The key is finding where talents lie.  If it’s not obvious and recognized in school or a traditional sports or extracurricular program, it may be overlooked.

Encourage your child to explore individual interests. Once they are identified, support it and assist in talent development.

Take the time and effort to explore different interests – find that talent that may be hidden.  Encourage your kids to always try their best – regardless of success.  Stay involved in school assignments, homework and pay attention to what is easy and what is difficult for them.  Identify strengths and areas of challenge.  Listen and help them develop their interests.  Expose them to a variety of environments where they can learn about different cultures, arts and appreciate the importance of giving back through community service.  Another idea is once a talent or interest is identified, find a mentor program to foster that interest.

As a parent, it is important work to build your children’s self-esteem. Even as infants, positive affirmation is key – knowing that they are capable of age-appropriate tasks and you believe in them is of utmost importance.  This is done through praise and positive feedback, expressing confidence in them and openly recognizing their potential.  It’s not a competition – your children are individuals with unique gifts and challenges.  Do not compare them with other siblings, friends or even your own childhood.

Realistic encouragement and affirmation is healthy.  However, expecting too much or giving false confidence only leads to frustration, potential failures and lower self-esteem later in life – the exact opposite of what you are trying to achieve!

The input you give your children is the blueprint from which they operate and see themselves.  And self-esteem is key to growth, exploring and achieving untapped potential.

Your voice is the first building block of their blueprint.  Make it positive and strong enough to support a lifetime of challenges.

All kids need their environment to be filled with positive influences that keep them safe and heading in the right direction as they grow and learn.  As your child ages, where they go and whom they associate with becomes more and more important.  Peers will become the most significant influencers of our teenagers, and most of us cannot monitor whom our kids hang out with at school or at afterschool activities.  We can hope for the best and stay involved, but we cannot be there 24/7.

The location of activities is also important.  Is it at school, at a public venue such as a park, at the mall or another local hang out?  Do you know who is there?  Is it supervised?

If we can keep the right group of kids surround our children, in the right environment that is supervised and safe, then we have created the best scenario possible.  You’ve spent years laying the foundation for a happy, healthy child- inside and out.  Now support that effort by creating the best surroundings possible for him/her to continue on that “right path.”

At the Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy, we spend time working on the physical aspects of a healthy kid as well as teaching values that will build integrity and self-esteem as they age.  We have instructors that are skilled in both the martial arts as well as issues youth frequently encounter such as bullying, peer pressure, stress, and much more.
