So let's just time with that next topic. With the next lecture, let's start thinking I'm keeping in mind that we can create the difference in your Children's lives. Let's go. 4. How to detect a low self esteem condition in our childs new: Hi. This is my knowledge. Avery. Again, would you welcome to this lecture? So far, we talk about the importance off the self esteem in your Children. Also, what are the effects off a low self esteem in them? No. Let's talk about how to detect a low self esteem condition. In order to do that, we have two different wasted it. The 1st 1 is through dialogue on the 2nd 1 It's through observation, using dialogue. We can peek in the emotional wallop for Children's to try to get a gleams or when it's happening there off what is happening in his own world. So it's important to have a good day. La Willow Children's on not just to have a daily, but to set our attention in what he's saying or what he's telling us, because normally our Children's tried to let us know what is happening in his war, but we don't always put enough attention on them, so that's important. Let's communicate little Children's. Let's try to understand what is happening in his world. The second witness observe ation using deserve ation. We can see the effects off the low self esteem ing them. One situation is when our Children talk with us about the hist relationship with his friends or classmates we can detect if he has problem to get to make new friends. Also, we can detect if he don't have friends on that. It's a good flag that let us know that there is a low self esteem there. I know that one is if there are Children, does not talk about his own achievements are also his failures. He he don't talk about that. It's second. There's a good chance to have our low self esteem under normally a child with a good cell fisting talk about his achievements and also his failures. But if the Children does not talk about achievements or failures, there is something that we need to analyze there. We need to put attention there. Another one is if the Children constantly used negative statements about his own behavior. Let's say something like I do it again. I fail again. I have the same mistake again if the Children as questions about where he is good or not, if he's handsome or not, if he is nice or not, if he often feel that everything that happens, it's something against himself if the Children issue stated because he don't have nobody to play with or if he needs to be alone. If the child is not able to do what is proposed to do because he always think that everything will go wrong if the Children is afraid to make mistakes. If your Children is always looking for attention, if the Children does not feel valued by the other Children's my dear friends, the situations are potential. Things that we have allows self esteem condition in them, so we need to take care of that toe dialogue on observation. We can detect possible possible things off low self fisting when it to analyze and reputation to dust sinks used to confirm it. We have a low self esteem condition on it, start working and then immediately to sell to fix the situation. So what are the next steps? The next steps are to learn how to help about Children's to fix that, to improve his own self esteem. So what I will learn so far we learn that we can use the day look on observation to try to detect a low self esteem condition in her child's released some situations that we can use a PSA signs that we have potentially low self esteem conditions. So now when we learned that, let's the start to review the techniques that we can use our spines as teachers, as close friends, as close relatives, to help our Children's, to develop a healthy on a strong self esteem. Let's continue. Let's start with this process to learn how to have all Children's. Let's continue, Let's go. 5. Do not compare : do not compare, sometimes green, as parents tend to make compressions off our Children with another Children's looking for them to be different. Or to this, something different phrases like, Why'd you are notice for India's John? Or look, waiting a Jew Behave like Rosie are typical in some parts, but these kind of comparisons this kind of phrases can heart the child self esteem because it is possible that the child feels embarrass. It feels that he would last on. Maybe he can think that we believe that the other child is spared on him. This good cuts and by I'm pressure to compete, to be something different on problems. To accept himself as he is it in positive comparisons could be potentially harmful because it can cause in the Children the feeling that he needs to be the best in order to be accepted or loved. Let's remember, in comparisons someone always loose. It is important that the child is valued at he is. So we have to tell him. I let him know that we love him as he is. He can always be better, but this will not cause any difference in her love teaching the Children. The continues quest to be better. It's important, but this should never cause that he feels that that conditions our love for him is important, that we let him know. I feel that we love him as he is. 6. Talk a lot: don't I look? Learning to communicate is key for a good self esteem on an ability to communicate, creates delves, hesitations. I'm fierce to being excluded or rejected. You should establish ongoing communication with your child. Can be true. Games, dances Very effective this such as music or just spending time with him doing something together where you can tuck untracked when the child feel close to his parents and feels that he can easily talk with them and get an answer it, producing him the sense of support on security as they feel that their parents will always be there for him. On these Willis strength. Also his ability to communicate the interest on his concerns. This parents can learn about the concerns in question off their Children on their more about what is happening in your child's world. A good communication can be the difference between all living with a child who trusts us as parents on make us part of the war there affection and interest.
