Put Your Kids In Situations Where They Have To Work To Achieve Something

  • “Genuine self-esteem is built from achievement not just affirmation.” – @TimElmore
  • Yes, we need to affirm and encourage our kids. They need to know we believe in them.
  • But…if we want to set them up for future independence and success and self-worth, they must achieve things on their own.
  • Put your kids in situations where they have to work to achieve something.
  • Don’t step in when they’re struggling and asking questions and do it for them.
