How to empower kids - Your roadmap to empowerment for children

Everyone wants their children to be healthy, happy, and empowered – but many of us are unsure exactly what we can do, as parents, to help them grow up self-confident enough to feel they’re in control of their lives. 

 

Empowering children is the process of giving them the power to be confident and in control of their decisions and their destiny – and as parents, there is a massive role we can play in helping lay the foundations for a strong self-image.

 

We should ensure our kids have the inner-belief to pursue being and embodying, their best selves. 

 

So as parents, what can we do?

 

Firstly, you should give your children responsibilities – whether it’s chores, a paper-run or some commitment which contributes to the greater good of the family, or society. Help them understand their role in the bigger picture. 

We must celebrate their accomplishments – Whether it’s a first-place finish in a race or an exam, or just completing a drawing or project in their spare time. Celebrate with your child and allow them to glow in their achievements. 

 

Your children should also be involved in decisions within the household, and classroom, even if they are minor – this will imbue them with a sense of authority and importance.

 

And of course, you must lead by example and fully support your children throughout their journey – practise what you preach. For example, it will be difficult explaining the benefits of healthy eating if you don’t do it yourself. 

 

Your child wants to be empowered, but they will need your help along the way – support them and believe in them and watch them shine.
