One of the most important things you can teach your child is respect and the best way to teach respect is to show respect. When a child experiences respect, they know what it feels like and begin to understand how important it is.
Keep in mind the saying "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
The balancing act parents make when it comes to their child's after school extracurricular activities can be a challenge. On one side, you have your busy life, with dinner to plan, kids to care for a home to care for and of course a job, too. On the other side, you have the number of after school activities that your children want to be part of. Where is the balance, if there is any? For each family, there needs to be a different set of rules to follow.
It's often been said that children learn what they live. So if you're looking for a place to start helping your child build positive self esteem and self value, then you should show them your positive sense of self and strong self esteem. Be positive when you speak about yourself and highlight your strengths. This will teach your child that it's okay to be proud of their talents, skills and abilities.
