Humans experience a range of different emotions throughout their lifetime: happiness, sadness, frustration, anger, fear, disgust, surprise, and more. All of these emotions are perfectly natural as long as they’re in balance. While in moderation, negative emotions like sadness, anger, or frustration can empower us and help us become better versions of ourselves; if we experience too much of these emotions or approach them with the wrong mindset, they will reduce our quality of life and have an impact on our self-esteem. Although everyone should feel comfortable seeking help for mental health conditions like depression, it can be particularly difficult for children who may attempt to distance themselves or resort to bad behavior as a means of dealing with their problems. Low self-esteem is one sign that can show that your child is dealing with some of these problems, but may be too ashamed to discuss them.
We’re going to take a look at some of the best ways to help your child improve their self-image so that they’ll be more open about their feelings. If you have any questions, get in touch with our behavioral therapists here at Kaizen Academy.
