Talking about the positive events or accomplishments in your child’s life can have a profound effect on them. It boosts their self-esteem and gives them every reason to expect better things in the future.
Help kids build their self-image by asking these questions:
1. What makes you feel proud of yourself?
-When you know what makes them feel great, you can build on it with more questions about where they want to go in their lives.
2. What family memories do you think about?
-When you hear how they view the family, you can ask them where they see themselves in the mix.
3. Were you ever surprised by someone?
-Knowing what surprises them can give you hints for future reference.
