Ways to Boost Your Teen’s Self-Esteem


COLORADO SPRINGS, CO May is National Teen Self-Esteem Month and one-on-one brain training company LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com) is sharing tips to help boost your teen’s self-esteem.

  1. Give them access to positive, useful information to help them create good habits. One of the best books on the subject is “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.”

2. Encourage them to mentor younger children. Helping others and serving as a good role model is a simple, effective way to build self-esteem and strengthen good values.

3. Provide opportunities for new successes. Consider activities in which they can succeed and build self-esteem: an art class, music lessons, individual or team sports, or serving others through volunteer work.

4. Get to the root of the problem. Kids often beat themselves up over low academic performance. “It’s an endless cycle to try to raise the self-esteem of kids who aren’t performing well,” says Dr. Ken Gibson, author of “Unlock the Einstein Inside: Applying New Brain Science to Wake up the Smart in your Child.”  “This is especially true if they’re placed into special education instead of trying to address the weak cognitive skills.” Gibson recommends one-on-one brain training to target weak cognitive skills. “When learning is faster and easier, kids tend to have more confidence.”
