Self exploration in a human being begins right at infancy and develops till adulthood. The period when the toddler starts reacting to the features around them, is the time when they have a brush with their own self esteem. The realisation about self and discovering one’s own belief into a form of character is self esteem.
Little actions while playing with peers, parents or teacher introduces the toddler to the world of self esteem. This is the time when they start responding to ideas like “this is me” or this belongs to me”. The simple act of playing with toys between toddlers make them realise the fact the toy belongs to either of them.
Parents play a pivotal role in shaping this self esteem as the toddler promotes towards growth. Educating the toddler with the rightful act and wrong one should be started right at this age.
While graduating towards primary school
, the sense of competition grips in their minds. Being good or bad in studies should not be engraved in their young minds. This is the period of beginning for the thoughts like high self esteem or low self esteem. Confidence clubbed with optimism are the key factors of high self esteem. On the other hand pessimism and under estimating oneself can be root cause behind self esteem. Now is the time when parents can intervene and helps to sow the seeds of positivity in the toddler which will develop into a good self esteem.
Always encourage them saying that they are good but there is always scope to become better. Never show them a wrong picture on their own self as what they are not. If there is room for development, then make them face the fact to become better. False appreciation does not help. But help really helps.
