Martial Arts Classes are known for their ability to build a child's self-esteem and develop their confidence.
Before I get into how that works, and how you can make sure that your child gets the self-esteem and self-confidence you're looking for, let's back up and discuss the things that influence their self-esteem in the first place.
As you grow up, everyone around us has the potential to influence our self esteem. Some people are born with low levels of confidence and don't learn how be confident until later in life; others might experience things like bullying which makes them feel bad about themselves for a long time after it happens.
We all have different personalities so what affects one person may not affect another same individual even though both are going through similar situations at home or school
The part of growing up that most impacts how you feel about yourself is your childhood. As children go through different stages in their lives, everything from personality development to changes within the family environment can have an effect on who they become adults with high or low self-esteem.
Society often has a lot of pressure on people and this can lead to low self-esteem. There are so many expectations in our society, such as needing to look certain ways or act all together different than how you feel on the inside just because other's think that is what they should do with their lives - which leads them feeling guilty for not meeting these standards even if it doesn't suit your personality at all!
Our absolute obsession with the media, whether it is print ads, television, or social media, contributes to the dilemma of widespread self-esteem issues, especially in today's youth. The ready access of social media especially helps to influence young minds with the pressure to look, act, or otherwise be like celebrities, public figures, or even their peers. It can be hard not to compare yourself to others even as an adult, but young people struggle with this even more than adults.
The people you spend time with have a big influence on your self-esteem. Your friends can help you build up your confidence, self-image, and self-respect, or they can bring you down. Some people even purposefully bring each other down to build themselves up, whether or not they are aware of what they are doing.
The family that you grew up with, as well as the family that you come home to, can have an effect on your self-esteem as well. Feelings of inadequacy when it comes to providing for your family can add to a low self-esteem, while a family that works together and builds each other up can contribute to a healthy self-esteem.
Your overall health can also contribute to your self-esteem. Taking care of yourself, body, mind and spirit can strengthen all aspects of yourself including your self-esteem.
Overall, there are so many factors that can influence your self-esteem. Every part of your life has influence, and therefore has power over your self-esteem. But, the person with the most control over your self-esteem is yourself. Practice giving yourself good messages; avoid self-bullying in order to build up your self-esteem.
