Does your boy or girl often feel isolated? Struggle to get involved in social situations? Nervous about what people think of them, or maybe they’re just a little unsure of how they feel about themselves? These could be signs that your child is experiencing low self-esteem or self-confidence.
This practical guide combines proven cognitive-behavioral therapy methods used by child psychologists in schools with simple activities to help your child grow their self-esteem. It’s perfect for children ages 8 to 12 because a lot happens in these years that can impact a child’s sense of self-worth, not just now but for years to come.
Your child will be guided, with the help of Bop—a friendly and supportive character they can identify with—through fun and engaging activities interspersed with useful tips, inspirational statements, and practical information for parents.
