Thank you for your lovely feedback!

Building self esteem

I wanted to thank all of you who came along to the “How to talk so teenagers listen…” session at Heathfield on 2 February for your feedback. I thoroughly enjoyed the session and your feedback is really helpful – here it is, on the Heathfield website if you would like to have a look.

The next session will be on “Building your teenager’s self-esteem”

Parents are often concerned about their teenagers’ self-esteem, either they think their teenager has too little or too much! But, what is “self-esteem”, where does it come from and what can we, as parents, do to improve our teenager’s self-esteem?

I will be running a session at Heathfield School on 23 March, 6:30 PM-7:45 PM focusing on helping parents to build their teenager’s self-esteem, the session will cover:

  • Helping parents understand what self-esteem is, where it comes from (I found this fascinating!)
  • How it changes over time (& why Year 9 is so challenging!) and, most importantly,
  • How we as parents can help to build and strengthen our teenagers’ self-esteem

I know what I cover in this session works because research I have done on self-esteem has challenged and changed me, it has made me rethink how I think about myself and enabled me to grow my self-belief. As parents, we often struggle with our own self-belief in how we parent so you might find this helpful for yourself as well as your teenager!
