Building a child s self concept

“I got two A’s”, the small boy said, his voice was filled with glee.

His father bluntly asked, “Why didn’t you get three?”

“Mom, I’ve got the dishes done,” the girl called from the door.

Her mother very calmly said, “Did you sweep the floor?”

“I mowed the grass,” the tall boy said, “and put the mower away.”

His father asked him with a shrug, "Did you clean off the clay?”

The children in the house next door seemed happy and content.

The same things happened over there, but this is how it went.

“I’ve got two A’s,” the small boy said. His voice was filled with glee.

His father proudly said, "That's great, I’m glad that you belong to me.”

“Mom, I’ve got the dishes done,” the girl called from the door.

Her mother smiled and softly said, “Each day I love you more.”

“I’ve mowed the grass,” the tall boy said, “and put the mower away.”

His father answered with much joy, “You’ve made my happy day.”

Children deserve a little praise for tasks they’re asked to do. If they’re to lead a happy life, so much depends on you.

  • Plan successes

  • Point out successes

  • Help the child perceive him/herself as successful

  • Provide practice to improve skills

  • If they have more failures than successes, back up to where success is achieved, and then move ahead gradually

  • A child who is over-protected and not allowed to fail will learn to try only if success is guaranteed.

Provide more successes than failures for the child.

Give the freedom to fail with acceptance.
