The most amazing qualities about children is their compassion and ingenuity. Children are our most precisions resource and are the most susceptible to life's twist and turns. Ideally parents want to keep their children safe and happy. However, as our children grow and go to school, afterschool, sport teams and other clubs we as parents are no longer able to protect them from the harsh realities of life. Issues like cyber bullying or real word bullying, body issues, oversharing in various social media platforms and relationship building are just a few of the challenges our children face today. Something as innocent seeming as a disagreement on the bus can lead to a child being phased out of a social group. These life events can dampen the brightness of our children and have long lasting effects seen into adulthood. The question is how do we prepare our children for life in this environment? How do we build their self-esteem? The simplest thing is keeping the lines of communication open. Starting early and staying consistent is the most important thing. A child having someone they can talk to in a nonjudgmental space with no expectations is vital. It doesn't matter if its in the form of family therapy, individual therapy or coaching so you can talk to your child we can help.
