Have your child stand in front of a mirror and say loving things to him or herself.
For example, you can ask them to say, "I really love my eyes."
"I really love the way I smile." "I love myself!"
You can stand next to them and say the same things about yourself as you look in the mirror with them demonstrating how to express gratitude for yourself.
Ask your child what they like about themselves.
It may be their smile, the fact that they are nice to their friends or that they pick up their toys, the way they care for a grandparent or a sibling.
Show them how to appreciate the little and the big things in life.
Self-esteem is developed through-out their life. By teaching them how to love themselves when they are little you are helping them to build a positive self-image and grow up to be confident and secure.
