When we talk of self-concept in kids it reflects about how the child feels about himself or herself. It’s all about how your child thinks about himself, his values, skills and his worth.
Self-concept is all about feeling good about oneself, feel accepted and loved by the people around. Your child develops self-concept depending on the way you behave with him. If you respond to him in a positive and caring manner, your child will always have good thoughts about himself and he won’t feel bad about himself. Your love, acceptance and admiration make him cherish his own worth and value.
During the growth process, your child explores his environment and if during this time you give him the needed support and guidance, he will think of himself as a worthy person.
A healthy self-concept is very vital in building your child’s personality. A child who has a negative self-concept will always blame himself for anything wrong happening around. For instance, if any of his classmates turn down any of his request; which might be because of some genuine reason, the child being turned down would always take it upon him personally and feel that he is hated by others.
On the other hand, when a child grows up with a healthy self-concept; he will never feel bad of being rejected or turned down. Instead, he will try to understand why it’s happening and would react in a positive manner.
