How much does your teen rely on others feedback for their emotional wellbeing?
For example, does what others think about someone or say about someone define who they are as a person?
These are important thoughts to explore with your teen because if this is true for your teen, then it makes them a victim under someone else's control instead of a leader in their community.
How can we build "healthy" self-esteem in our teens?
💡Explore what lies they are believing about themselves (no one likes me, etc.)
💡Help them replace the lies with truth-how can they believe the best about themselves and speak the truth about who they are and what they value?
💡Explore how they can use what is true about them as people, to help and serve others.
💡Explore how they can see their talents & strengths and apply them to make a difference in their world.
💡Help develop a growth mindset in your teen. One that looks at failures like learning opportunities to propel them to the next learning opportunity.
Our teens are smart. Empty praise actually decreases self-esteem.
It creates cognitive dissonance in the brain.
Telling them they are the smartest in the town when it is not true, only increases their insecurity when thing come difficult to them.
