Raise Low Self-Esteem Minimize Emotional Effects of Dyslexia

Updated: Dec 26, 2018

Has your child ever come home from school very emotional?

You’re not sure if they are angry or about to cry?

You ask, “How was your school day?”

Your child begins to describe the events that happened while fighting back tears. He tells you about hurtful comments that were said to him, the glaring looks from other students as he began to read, the whispering, and the pointing of the finger towards him while laughing.

He suddenly felt embarrassed. He felt stupid. He felt like a failure.

He tells you that he wanted to run out of the room.

These negative emotions have been engraved into his subconscious mind.

I get it. I’ve been there.

I was bullied in middle school just for being the new girl.

I know, that was middle school eons ago, but the emotions of that school year of being put-down and belittled are what get in the way of my stepping out of my comfort zone NOW as an adult.

Who wants to be laughed at or have someone think less of you, right?

I’m really passionate about giving our kids tools that they can use when they feel like a failure or made to believe they aren’t important.

Growing up is tough enough without having to worry who’s disapproving of you.

We carry these negative thoughts in our subconscious mind.

When we try to step out to learn something new, or step in front a crowd of people to make a speech, our subconscious mind gives us reasons not to.

They are really good reasons. They are SO good that they are believable.

So we shrink back into the crowd.

What if we, as parents, could recognize these negative events when they happen to our children?

What if we were able to give them tools to overcome these negative thoughts before they became part of their subconscious brain?
