Episode 249

Healthy self-esteem is so important for children, especially those with big emotions who are at a high risk for feeling bad about themselves. But in the day-to-day struggles of parenting, it’s easy to fall into patterns that put more emphasis on our children’s immediate behavior than their long-term self-worth.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why healthy self-esteem is more than something that would be nice to have
  • What our band-aid parenting teaches teaches kids about their self-worth
  • Long Game strategies for building resilience without sacrificing children’s self-esteem
