Children’s self-esteem matters
Children’s self-esteem matters
Children’s self-esteem matters because it’s directly linked to accomplishment and fulfilment.
Building children’s self-esteem matters more today than ever before because instances of low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression in children are increasing. (Centre for Longitudinal Studies; Mental ill-health among children of the new century).
This trend must be reversed, and reversed quickly, because anxiety & depression in childhood are proven to result in several unhelpful outcomes in adulthood. These include obesity, unemployment, and self-rated health issues.
In other words!
Helping your children to develop their self-esteem provides them with protection from anxiety and depression. At the same time, it offers them greater prospects in adulthood.
Children’s self-esteem matters because it’s proven to underpin self-motivation, happiness, and fulfilment in life.
Understanding themselves from an early age is important too because self-awareness develops self-confidence and leads to improved self-esteem.
Children are facing overwhelming challenges today!
Several destructive factors that have emerged over the past 2 decades are threatening children’s self-esteem more today than ever before.
Widespread gaming & social media addiction. Cyber-bullying. The negative labelling explosion coupled with the overuse of prescription drugs. The disintegration of the family unit.
What does the future look like?
The World Health Organisation clearly describe the unpleasant future facing today’s children! They predict that; “depression will be the number one health concern above all others by 2030”.
Is anything being done?
Even though many organisations have raised the alarm, government leaders and educational authorities don’t seem to be paying a great deal of attention. Evident in their lack of significant action.
On the other hand, we all know that even when governments do take action it could still be years before these changes filter through into our everyday lives.
What can we do?
So, it seems, at least for the immediate future that it’s up to us to take action ourselves to shield and uphold our own children’s self-worth & well-being.
