Self-Esteem

Reducing barriers to learning.

It is important to notice children’s strengths and talk about them openly. Perhaps they are enthusiastic, creative or curious? If you focus on these things, their strengths are likely to increase and their weaknesses may become less obvious.

Some children will find it difficult to learn to read and write, but every child has the potential to develop their character strengths. These include the use of their sense of humour, a keen sense of bravery, an innate ability to be kind, or to be more grateful.

This section contains some information, support and tools on how to help children and young people develop and reinforce their self-esteem.
