Self esteem, confidence & Resilience



Self-esteem is how a person feels about themselves.  Most children will have dips in self-esteem as they go through different stages or challenges in life, and there are different pressures that may affect them - including social media, bullying, exams, family problems and abuse.


Things like starting a new school, moving house or going through changes in the family cam also affect a child's confidence - but with support from parents and other adults they can usually get through this.



Helping you child build resilience and confidence is one of the most important gifts you can give them.  We all understand how life can bring you many challenges throughout and how important it is on how we manage this.  Resilience is being able to manage stress, challenges, trauma or adversity that life brings and bounce back from it.  When children and teens are resilient, they are going to be more confident, curious and adaptable to the world around them.
