Importance of Self Esteem-2

                                   High and Low Self Esteem

To be Happy and Successful in Life, it is very important for everyone to think and feel good about one-self.One should have the confidence that they are capable of doing things to the best of their ability.This means every one should have Self Esteem.

A Child with High Self Esteem feels :-





…Confident and willing to try new things.


A Child with Low Self Esteem feels :-


…Afraid to try new things

…Helpless to do a task alone

…Fearful of situations

…Sad and dejected



Some of the things we can do to help build Self Esteem in our children.

LOVE :- Show love unconditionally to your child.We don’t have to say I love you, only when he/she does well.Say it anytime to make them feel secure.

STRESS:- Encourage your child to take up new challenges.Make him/her feel comfortable and let them know that you are there to guide them , if they get stuck.

If there are tough decisions to be made ,sit and talk with your child about various options,and,you can decide what to do, together.

Do not expect perfection.Praise them,compliment them- even if you feel that the task which they have accomplished is not good enough.This will encourage the child,and never make him/her feel that they have  disappointed you.

All critical comments should be constructive.Every child is good at something ,make sure to comment on this unique talent.It could be even just -listening.

RESPONSIBILITY:- Give your child every chance where he/she can learn to be responsible.  Praise what he/she does,make him/her feel capable and boost his/her Self Esteem.You can,however, suggest to him/her ways for further improvement.

COMMUNICATION:- Self Esteem can be built by having good relationships with family and friends and keeping a regular dialogue , tell them so,and later when you are free -remember to ask what they wanted to show you.

Learn to listen to your child.This makes him/her feel important.Show him/her  that you are interested in all he does by asking simple questions like…”how was your day at home or in school..What they ate or whether they went outside to play.”

RESPECT:- Self Esteem can be built by respecting your child’s….Choices,Opinions and the things he has ,it could be a stone or leaf he picks up.Remember-just like you feel your things are important ,so are the things they have.

GOALS:-You can help your child to make up his/her mind about their goals-daily,weekly or monthly.You can help them to achieve their goals by following up  on a regular basis.This would be a good Self Esteem booster.

Where as,it is  important to boost your child’s Self Esteem ,it is also equally important to guide and correct him/her- at the right time .It is also necessary to discipline him/her gently- yet firmly.Never ever do this in front of others-this would embarrass your child.



Self Esteem Shapes Life !!!




Importance of Self Esteem—1

                                    SELF ESTEEM

Self Esteem is the way we think and feel about ourselves.Self esteem shapes our lives and is important for everyone,both young and old.As parents it is important to help build up our child’s self esteem.Family and Home are two greatest influences to help children at all ages to build up a High Self Esteem.I read a beautiful poem….

I Am Glad to be Me

The author is unknown to me:

I look in the mirror

And what do I see?                              

I see the ME,

No one else can be.

I am Precious.

I am glad to be ME.

MY hair,my face.

My personality.

My size,my shape.                                                                                    

The colour of my skin.

All make up me

Outside and in.

I Am Glad to be me.





My Recipe for Self Esteem


1…I will always be …Proud to be me.

2…I Believe in myself.

3…I will love myself first.

4…I am important.

Kids lets have a little fun.You enjoy colouring and sticking right? (Art and Craft)

Here’s a chart which says “All About Me”

You can print it out. Then you can draw, colour, paint or stick ,following the instructions.

When you have finished stick it on your board.Remember  You are  the Best.Always be Proud of Yourself. Now this doesn’t mean you look down on others.Be happy for  what others can do.Everyone is good at something.



Being Responsible


What is responsibility?

Responsibility means doing things that you are supposed to do and then accepting the positive or negative outcome of your actions.

As children, as you grow up… you are given  small tasks for which you are responsible for.. and you have to face the consequences for not doing those tasks .Here are some examples:-

..You may have to tidy up your room and if you forget everyday, maybe you won’t be allowed your daily screen time.

..You must complete your school homework and remember to pack your bag.If you forget  your teacher gets upset with you,or you may get poor grades.

..You have a pet whom you have to feed daily.What happens if you forget…your pet will fall sick .

We all need to act with responsibility, if we want to live in a safe and happy world.

Cleaning your room as you grow is your responsibility and a way to help mum at home.

Completing your school work,also means respecting your teacher.

Keeping your environment clean at home and at school.

Not only you, but also your mum and every adult too, has to be responsible to become better citizen and have a Happy Earth.

This last year 2020 has been a very difficult time for every one in the world because of the Corona Pandemic

We all have tried to do our bit to help everyone to be safe. However, it’s sad to say but some adults all over the world have  been irresponsible.

They have not followed the 3 simple rules, given to us by Doctors and Health Workers.

…Washing Hands.

…Social Distancing.

…Wearing a Mask.

A simple chart to follow..If you like,you can print it and stick it at the entrance of your home..Remember, this pandemic is here to stay for a long time.We need to take care and live safely and try to make the world a better place.


…Be responsible.

…Never feel embarrassed to stand for or do the right thing.(Wear a mask at all times when you are outside, even if someone laughs at you.)

…Respect your elders by being responsible, if asked to do something.(Do your school work if asked by your teacher.)

How to Live the Best way during Difficult Times and still Be Always Grateful

Hi Parents,

The year 2020 is one that will be remembered by generations to come…The Covid 19 Pandemic…

We are learning and have learnt and still learning… to live with the  Covid 19 Pandemic.It’s been almost a year when we have all been at home and learnt multitasking.It’s been a tough time for you parents especially for you dear mums and of course you all dear children.We have all learnt to do things together and to live with each other the best way we can .We have had happy times,sad times, trying times,difficult times and easy times and frustrating times, wondering how to manage ourselves. We have learnt not to  take things for granted but to be always grateful for all that we have….a home to live in,friends and family and all our daily needs.The world will be a changed place when things become normal or I should say near normal .here are some pictures which say it all:-

Learning to do things at home.

                                                                       Messy home

Working together and multi-tasking

Pearls of Wisdom :

………Let’s think of small things in life which we always took for granted.

Let’s be Grateful for Each  New Day in our lives.

Let’s be grateful for everything in our lives.

Value our Loved Ones.

We have had a quality family time,were mum,dad, children,grandparents and relations have been home together.We have all  been busy in the rat race of life and had forgotten what family bonding means.We grew closer to our loved ones and realised what they like ,what they don’t .We have learnt how important it is to respect each other and to value each other’s work and time.

We have learnt how to share work and help each other .No work is difficult to do whether it is sweeping ,mopping ,washing or cooking.We have learnt time management and multi-tasking.

We have learnt to be grateful and thankful for all that we have got.We have learnt how to manage with simple and small amounts of everything we use… food, provisions, daily requirements.The joy of simple homemade food and the importance of eating meals together.

Caring and sharing .The joy of giving and realising how lucky we are to have a home and loved ones.Respecting each other and understanding how everyone’s work is important.Most importantly, we have learnt to value our house help and  realised how much work they did for us.

We have all in someway or the other helped the less fortunate…The Joy of Giving.

The Covid lockdown has made us observant. We have seen things in the house and outside which we took for granted and learnt to appreciate all things big and small.We suddenly realised how beautiful the world is .Every tree, flower and bird chirping  looked so beautiful .The sky with the setting sun and clouds made us gasp with excietment and made us want to capture that simple moment in a photo and maybe we  shared with others.

We have learnt the fun of connecting with our long lost friends and relations.Respect and care for senior citizens.

We rediscovered ourselves.Remembering our old hobbies and trying them out again.We realised the joy of being just by ourselves.. just sitting and staring into space which we may not have done for a iong time.. as we were too busy running around.

Most of all, we have learnt the meaning of life and how to live and be happy with whatever we have. Everything big or small needs to be nurtured and respected.We all have our own little stories that the lockdown has made us experience.

Ofcouse all the time has not been happy .There were and will be difficult days.Times when we feel how will we carry on .We have lost our tempers and had bad moods.We have learnt to control and discipline ourselves.

Be patient.. this too will pass.Be strong and stand by each other and we will come out into a better world and be better people.Let us not give up and keep doing our best in whatever way we can.


To be loving, caring and patient.

To Respect others and ourselves.

The importance of simple food and  simple exercise.

Being observant not missing even the smallest things that are around us.

Making Gratefulness our daily habit.

We should stick to these after the covid lockdown and become better human beings and the world a better place to live in.
