learned. As a parent, you can help them build their self-esteem by pointing out all the new things they know.
You might get out an old favorite book and say, Remember when you had trouble reading this book? If your child is struggling with long division, say, Remember when you couldn't add 6 + 9?
Soon your children will want to be involved. Ask them to tell you what they've learned that they didn't know yesterday . . . or last week . . . or last month. And sometimes, think about the future. Ask, What do you want to know by this time next year?
We're all encouraged to know we're making progress. A few minutes spent talking with your child now can build self-esteem and a love for learning that will last for many years.
