A reminder that this free presentation is coming up this Tuesday evening at 7:30pm. Also, I’ve had a few phone calls this week asking if registration is required. It is not, however, I’d love to know if you’re coming so that I know approximately how many handouts to print. If you haven’t already called me, can you please email me at email@example.com?
The presentation will include key parenting practices for ending self-criticism and building self-confidence, AND some templates with questions to help you apply the knowledge to your parent-child interactions at home.
Here’s a summary:
“We all want our children to have healthy self-esteem. And it can be heart-breaking to see your once-sparkly-eyed child begin to show signs that her confidence is faltering when she:
- self-criticizes (e.g., “I’m terrible at skating”, “I’m stupid”),
- becomes easily discouraged,
- feels defeated before even trying (“I’ll never be able to do that”),
- is reluctant to try new activities, or
- easily becomes anxious.
Whether you’re a parent of older kids who feels stymied about how to turn these symptoms around in your child, or a parent of young children who wants to prevent symptoms before they start, this presentation focuses on regular parenting practices that you can use to nurture the seeds of self-esteem and self-confidence that already exist in your child—but just need the right growing conditions to really flourish.”

If you’d like to have a cup of tea and prefer not to use styrofoam cups–bring a mug!
Please feel free to share this with any parents, teachers or other folks who work with children.
I hope to see you there!
