Posted: 4 Februari 2012 in Uncategorized

How to encourage self esteem:

  1. Tell them that you love them
  2. Take time to listen to them and talk to them
  3. Spend time with them
  4. Help them to find the solutions to problems
  5. Encourage them to follow their interests
  6. Display their work in the home
  7. Celebrate their achievements and milestones even small ones
  8. Allow your child to choose between two appropriate sets of clothing
  9. Allow ample time for the child to dress themselves in the morning
  10. Encourage child to carry their own backpack, bag, or personal belongings
  11. Help them to learn their surname, address, and phone number
  12. Observe the child and become aware of their interest, so that you can provide challenge
  13. Be friendly with error and remember that learning happens when a child is able to attempt a new activity with encouragement from adults
  14. When dealing with error in grammar, no need to correct but one may repeat the sentence correctly to avoid humiliation for the child. It will keep the experience positive rather than having the feeling of being corrected or rebuked
  15. Give the child positive feedback and resist saying ‘you did that the wrong way’. Correct  by setting the good example
  16. Remember it is the process of learning that is important, not the product


Activity ideas:

  1. Encourage a love of music as music is wonderful to help with stress as a way of relaxation
  2. You could give the child access to a saucepan and wooden spoon or other kitchen paraphernalia that are safe
  3. Implements that are kept in a special place in the kitchen to be used for percussion (tapping sticks, tubes, etc)
  4. Pick your child up and dance with them in the kitchen (if it’s big enough)
  5. If your life style permits take a child to group music lesson which are fun (Yamaha do them using keyboard), children pick up music skills very quickly if you start about 4-5 years
  6. If the child has a second language spoken in the home, take them to Saturday Language School
  7. Use everyday activities such as driving to school/day care to play games such as “i spy” to help children learn their sounds
  8. Encourage children to play board games such as Junior Scrabble and Junior Monopoly. They will need a lot of help initialy but this will help them to learn to take turns. Board games teach children a range of skills such as counting and word building and are good alternative to watching TV
  9. A chalkboard and chalk is an ideal way for children to practice drawing and writing as errors are so easy for them to erase
  10. Provide children with a variety of simple toys not an overwhelming number of elaborate expensive ones. Pack things away and rotate them so children can manage to tidy their toys away with very little help
  11. Children this age would enjoy puzzles, simple construction toys, simple musical instrumens, play dough, plasticine, crayons, country pencils, puppets, and books
  12. They love to create cubbles using old cardboard boxes, etc. Save old cardboard boxes for creative activities and such.
