For parents: The concept of self-worth

For children to develop self-worth they need adults who nurture the children in their care. Children read body language and facial expressions of their trusted adults and internalise this as self-worth. They need to see facial expressions that show interest and delight in them, body language that shows warmth, connection and safety. The language we use needs to communicate to them that they are special, they matter and are valued.  How to help your children with self-worthRead our blog.
