Tri-Town Council asks…What’s in YOUR lifepack? Fill it with Assets!

 

“Assets” represent the building blocks for thriving youth, families, and community —- everyday things that anyone can do to support our youth … and everyone can be an “Asset Builder”!

January’s Life is Good Superpower is Authenticity! AND the TTC Asset Connection is…

Asset #38: Self-Esteem Child likes her/himself, feels valued by others, and is proud of the person s/he is.

Here are 4 reasons why the SELF-ESTEEM Asset is good for youth:

  1. Self-esteem makes youth strong, leading them to have the ability to cope with whatever life throws their way.
  2. Self-esteem gives youth courage to take POSITIVE risks. If success doesn’t follow, or things don’t turn out the way s/he expected, the self-esteem Asset helps youth recognize that it’s not the end of the world.
  3. Because of #2, having self-esteem makes youth resilient – they can bounce back from problems, mistakes, disappointments, and failures.
  4. Self-esteem gives youth the strength to resist negative risks and peer pressure.

TTC Asset Tip: Help your child create a “proud of me” list. What are all the things they do that help them feel good about and proud of themselves?   Want to know more? Click here to learn more about the 40 Developmental Assets!
