‘Raising Self Esteem In The Young’ are activity sheets that enable teachers and carers to assist children who have special self esteem needs.
Underlying a child’s low self esteem is a ‘fear of failure’. This ‘fear of failure’ is not always readily apparent to parents or teachers, nor based on a child’s realistic evaluation of his/her current performance levels.
For children who have low self esteem because of an inappropriate self image, intervention needs to be directed at building up their awareness and acceptance of their ‘individual self’. These sheets allow teachers and parents to gain information on aspects of self esteem as applied to children; and then provides a series of ‘shared’ activities aimed at helping the carer cope with the child seen as ‘at risk’.
These activities are also available in a full eBook; 'Raising Self Esteem in the Young'.
