                 Family Life & Self Esteem

The biggest strength of Family Life is the promotion of
 positive activity between parent and child

Example Activity                  What I like best about my child

                                          Clever at making virtual robots
       Plays nicely with others
                                          Cute in pyjamas
             Good at swimming
                                          Not grumpy when poorly
               Makes us laugh

 A parent thinking positive thoughts about their child has a
            huge impact on the child’s self esteem.
