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.
Children learn about how well they are doing by how their peers react to their behaviour. They required praise at least twice as often as they are criticised. You could be the one to reinforce goodness in a child’s life.
