Self Reflection from Building Block 1:
“What is the most valuable thing you have gained from Building Trusting Attachments?”
Key Message: Building and Enhancing Self-Esteem
Showing young children that they are loved, lovable and capable builds healthy self-esteem.
It is important:
- to have a sense that we are all unique, valuable and important
- to have unconditional love from self and others (no matter what you do or you don’t do, you are worthy of love)
- to believe that we grow through experiences in life
- to view ourselves as competent in cognitive, emotional, and physical ways.
Feeling good about themselves helps children get along with others and grow into strong adults.
Craft: You Are a Star! (click this link for the activity)
-- Create a ‘star’ for your child by writing down the positive qualities, strengths, and attributes of that child all around the star. If you have a photo, you can glue it to the center of the star or you can print your child’s name. Share with your child the star you made. Show or tell them all about the special things about them.
