Course Description

While many of us feel we have an idea of what self-esteem is, it can still be difficult to pinpoint just how to go about helping a child to build a healthy one. In "Building Self-Esteem in Children," you will learn all about self-esteem and come out ready to put those skills into action in order to change a life, and make the world a better place.

This course goes beyond just the basics, such as why self-esteem is important, and what problems arise from children having low self-esteem. It also covers such in-depth angles as self-esteem at various stages throughout child development including infancy, elementary school, middle school, high school and young adulthood years.

This course also looks at how the words we use matter, the importance of being an active listener with children, defining values and core beliefs, and the power of positive thinking.

In addition this course will discuss the importance of taking a look at your own self-esteem, and how to go about making changes to build upon.
