Self-Image is the mental picture we have of ourselves. It is the way we see our abilities, behavior, appearance and personality. When we have a positive self-image, we recognize and own our talents, abilities and potential, while being realistic about our shortcomings and limitations. A positive self-image focus’ on strengths and assets. It includes nurturing our self-esteem and having an accurate self-perception. When a person thinks positively about who they are, their talents, their life experiences and their abilities, they are more likely to understand themselves, have confidence, practice self-control, and achieve their goals. Below you will find resources you can use at home to help teach this important skill to your child.
