Children who love themselves are on the road to mental health


Children in primary school are at a stage where core beliefs about themselves and the world around them are still being formed. What they begin to believe about themselves becomes, over time, their truth. So a child who develops self-beliefs such as “I am kind. I am competent. I am lovable” will likely find themselves on a path to good self-esteem.

[Anne McCormack - The Irish Times, 12 February 2017.]
