  • The three key ingredients for real self-esteem (that have nothing to do with thinking you're great!)

  • Useful phrases to acknowledge your child’s feelings when they’re feeling down about themselves

  • How to correct a sensitive child and get your message across without making the child feel hurt or defensive

  • The mistaken belief that gets in the way of kids making friends and what to do instead

  • Specific ways to help unmotivated kids find the courage to try

  • Questions to help your child understand the difference between fitting in and belonging

  • A simple but deeply meaningful way to offer hope, rather than hollow reassurance, to self-doubting kids

Learn ways to help your child develop genuine confidence.

Obviously, webinars from Open Door for Parents are NOT psychotherapy. They're for educational purposes only about important topics facing families. The ideas mentioned may or may not be relevant for your particular situation.

I trust you to use your judgment about what makes sense for your child and your family and to consult your physician or a mental health provider, if needed, about very serious or complicated situations.
