In this week’s vlog segment, I turn our attention to what parents can do to support the healthy development of their children as athletes and as young people. I focus on the essential topic of how to build self-esteem in your young athletes. Self-esteem involves how children come to view themselves and whether they feel loved, secure, and competent. Self-esteem is so important because it acts as the foundation for everything that children think, feel, do, and become.
This vlog segment offers you practical strategies you can use every day to foster healthy and resilient self-esteem in your young athletes.
