Building self esteem in our young people

A quick post! A young person with low self esteem, can usually do with a bit of extra praise. Sometimes you will find young people doing something that would be a normal expectation of every day life, like brushing their teeth, or getting ready for school, and then running to tell you about it, possibly expecting some praise. Don’t hold back! These moments (in fact go looking for them if they aren’t telling you) are great opportunities to bolster self esteem. It can be wearing, but this drip, drip, drip effect is extremely powerful and will have impact.
