How can we raise kids who feel they are lovable, worthy, and capable?
Self-esteem has become a popular concept, with varying ideas on how to cultivate it in our children. There are two main strategies used to develop self-esteem, one built on shaky grounds and another that is more sustaining and enduring. The developmental roots of natural self-esteem will be discussed, along with strategies for providing for its growth. Adults in a child or teen’s life are ideally positioned to nurture an intrinsic sense of self-worth which will help them grow into their full human potential. Class material is based on the science of human development and synthesizes developmental psychology, neuroscience, cultural wisdom, and attachment science.
