How can I help my child have good self-esteem?

REINFORCING A CHILD'S SELF ESTEEM

Children need to be told when they have done well, and to see your personal approval. It is not enough to simply accept their achievements, they need to be made aware that you approve in order to continue to strive to do their best. Poor self esteem can result when a child is underpraised. They may begin to feel as if their efforts are futile. There are hundreds of ways to tell your child they have done a good thing. Here are just a few:
You're on the right track now!
You are very good at that.
You're doing a good job.
I knew you could do it.
Now you have it.
Great!
You make it look easy.
You're getting better every day.

Outstanding!
Keep it up!
Good thinking!
Keep on trying.

That gives me a happy feeling.
