Help your child build genuine confidence (for parents)

Date: Saturday, June 18, 2022 at 11:00am EDT

Directly trying to boost kids' self-esteem tends to backfire. Genuine confidence comes, not from external praise and accomplishments, but from connecting with something bigger than ourselves. Dr. Eileen offers practical ways parents can help children with common self-esteem challenges related to making friends, persisting at difficult tasks, and handling constructive criticism.

About Dr. Eileen: Eileen Kennedy-Moore, PhD, is an author and clinical psychologist based in Princeton, NJ. She has written many books about children's feelings and friendships, including "Growing Friendships: A Kid's Guide to Making and Keeping Friends" and "Kid Confidence: Help Your Child Make Friends, Build Resilience, and Develop Real Self-Esteem." Her blog, Growing Friendships, on Psychology Today has over 4.5 million views. She's also the creator of DrFriendtastic.com (for kids) and OpenDoor.substack.com (for parents).
