Self-esteem, what is it?

Self-esteem is a psychological concept which represents the judgment of a person towards himself, whether positive or negative. 

Self-esteem depends on many internal and external factors: intellectual skills, education, environment... 

Good self-esteem means that the person has awareness of one's strengths, but also of his weaknesses, no problem! Low self-esteem means that the person is not sufficiently aware of their strengths and focuses mainly on their weaknesses. 

To have good self-esteem, you must first of all with a good self-knowledge ! It is by exploring activities, by testing things, that one can identify one's strengths and areas of expertise.

Why is self-esteem important?

A good self-esteem is learned from a very young age and it works for a lifetime! With a good self-esteem, the child can easily express what he feels, his emotions, his ideas, he will dare to make choices, take risks and be more creative ! His relationships with others will also be easier, he will make friends faster and he will trust more easily. A good self-esteem will allow children to become fulfilled and accomplished adults! In everyday life, at school, at work, self-esteem allows us to be comfortable with others and in society: speaking in front of a group, defending our ideas, taking decisions and taking risks . Everything is connected: the more important the self-esteem, the more we dare to take risks, the more self-esteem grows, it's a virtuous circle! On the contrary, poor self-esteem limits decision-making and risks, it can lead to complicated relationships with others and can be the cause of real discomfort. Self-esteem is fragile, it is essential to give importance to it from an early age.

How to increase your self-esteem through play?

To play is to dare! When he starts a game, the child is never sure of winning or of succeeding in his mission 100%.

He's already taking a risk by deciding to get into a game!

Thanks to the game, the child will know victories! He feels able to do things, his skills are thus valued: he manages to show logic and reflection, to call on his creativity...

It is by playing that he will learn to know himself, to discover his strengths and self-knowledge is essential for developing good self-esteem. By testing various creative activities and games, the child will be able to become aware of his strengths: creativity, sport, logical thinking... He will also be proud of what he has accomplished: a painting, a football victory, a successful math exercise.

But the child also knows failures! Throughout the game, the child will make mistakes and not always win! His self-esteem will be undermined but this is also how he will learn to keep confidence in him despite the failures! It is by maintaining self-confidence that he will be able to bounce back, learn from his mistakes and develop new skills to find the right solution.
