Newborns and very young babies don't see themselves as being their own person. This means they don't really have self - esteem. You can still lay the groundwork for healthy self-esteem by:
*caring for your baby gently
*responding when your baby cries
*giving lots of cuddles and smiles
Self- esteem comes from knowing that you're loved and that you belong to a family that values you.
Toddlers learn about themselves by discovering what they look like - for example, mirror provide hours of fun. They're also discovering what they can do, and 'I do it" is often a favourite expression. And they're working out where they belong, often by seeking out their loved ones for comfort and reassurance.
Toddlers are beginning to develop an understanding of themselves, what the can do and what makes them who they are. Your toddler wants to make more decisions - and it's a good idea to let him have a go at deciding between safe, toddler-friendly options, like which toy to play with or which hat to wear. As they learn, toddlers realise that they have the power to make things happen, which adds to their developing self-esteem.
So you have a very important role to play in building your child's self-esteem.
*Let your child explore her environment but be present and ready to respond to her if she needs you.
*Let your toddler make reasonable decisions
*Give your child the chance to say 'no'. Toddlers need to assert themselves. For eg: if your toddler says no when you ask him to put on a jacket on, that's OK.
*Coach your child through tricky social situations
By around three years, most children realise that their bodies and minds belong to them. Most children can cope with some time away from their families now, because they feel safe and loved.
At this age, they often like to compare themselves with others, and will ask whether they're the biggest, fastest or best at whatever they're doing.
A balanced feedback is a good way to respond. This let's children feel pride in themselves, but sends the message that other people are important and can do things well too.
