JONATHON: Hi mums and dads, Jonathon Hourigan from Black Belt Plus here in Burleigh. Last blog, we talked about how we can build a child’s self esteem through physical skills and they were balance, and speed, co-ordination and strength, and so on. In this blog I want to talk about how children can help to build their own self esteem. So in our school and at home we encourage these things to be done. Firstly we start off with encouraging children to have good posture, standing straight, looking confident. From there we encourage them to smile, and also to help each other, and that can be in the form of they give each other praise when we’re doing races and games. And also, if somebody falls over or makes a mistake, nobody laughs, they just tend to cheer them on.
And at home, well sorry not home, but at school we encourage them to look out for others at school as well, so like for instance, if someone is being bullied then they go over and try to be that person’s friend. So by doing these things we encourage children to be an individual, to realise that they don’t have to be like everybody else, and to just be themselves and be proud of that.
Okay. That’s great. Look forward to seeing you next blog. Bye.
