Our Children’s Identity

Most often, children with a strong sense of who they are, are often very resilient and have more confidence. Children with confidence learn and achieve more.

We can help build our children’s sense of identity by allowing them to follow their own interests and not just copying ours. By learning about their strengths, weaknesses and what is important to them, their sense of identity is developed.

We can also encourage our children to talk about their feelings, this especially very important for boys as they tend not to express themselves as freely as girls.

We can share our own interests and passions with them and listen to their interests without judging or comparing them.
