A wonderful quote about “Self Esteem” for children…

“Every action your children make is an attempt to meet their needs.

This is true whether or not the behavior is successful at meeting their needs.

This is true whether or not the behavior is acceptable.”

A child who picks fights with their siblings, shows off in an obnoxious way,
baby talks, or acts regressive Screen Shot 2015-09-01 at 11.24.35 AMneeds something.
It might be more attention or less pressure or more challenge.
Sometimes you can simply ask your children
if they have any suggestions about how a problem could be solved.
You might be surprised at the creativity of their solutions.
By just making your children part of the process,
you will change their prospective about the problem
and make them more interested in solving it.
Another way to involve a child in problem-solving process is through a family “brainstorming” meeting”
