Helping children to have a better future is easier than you think; you don’t need to wait to become a billionaire like Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey to help the non profits to make the difference. You can become a volunteer with Dreams to Reality and you can donate your time to being a teaching assistant in a local school in Cape Town.
Help a child build self confidence!
Self-esteem is a person’s core belief about himself or herself. A person’s self-esteem is reflected in his or her actions, both in how as well as what he or she does. Although self-esteem varies from time to time, the pattern usually leans toward a healthy or unhealthy view of self. With healthy self-esteem, a person is more likely to succeed in life.
Although building self-esteem is a lifelong process, the foundation of self-esteem is established in childhood. That foundation can do much to help a child deal with difficult life issues as they are encountered.
Parents have the greatest influence on a child’s belief about himself or herself but so do the people who they encounter on a daily basis, you could make a positive impact on a child’s life.
