What’s it all about?


It can sometimes feel difficult to think of positive things about ourselves and to know what it is exactly that makes us who we are. We know that this is something children can often struggle with too.


Understanding that we are all unique, with our own strengths, qualities and interests is very important for our well-being. Through having a positive view of ourselves, we can feel better equipped to cope with life’s challenges and make better connections with others.


As parents and carers, you play a very important role in helping your children to understand that they are unique.


Here are a few simple ways you can encourage your children to understand the importance of ‘Being Ourselves’


  • Point out your children’s positive qualities determination, courage, kindness – help them to notice what makes them unique.
  • Have a chat about the strengths, qualities and interests within your family over dinner, in the car or when you are playing together… it can be fun to notice how we are all different from each other!
  • Celebrate your efforts with your children whether you go for a run, get promoted at work or cook a great meal, sharing your achievements, no matter how big or small, will help your children to recognise their own.


Don’t forget: If you’re worried about your child, talk to your GP or someone at school. You can also find support and advice for parents on the websites below:
