Finally, encourage your child to build a positive self-concept. This can be facilitated through recognition and appreciation of what your child has done or is doing. Just by saying "thank you", "good" "keep it up", or "do that again" to your child you are already reinforcing a positive self-concept. Consequently, your child will become confident of what he or she can do. He or she will be able to do things independently. Just like what my three-year old daughter does when she cannot get objects that are beyond her reach. Instead of crying out to us for help, she will take the initiative of pulling a chair and in using it to get the object she was at first unable to reach. She knows her limitation but she is able to find her way to overcome it.
When your child has self-knowledge, self-acceptance, self-worth and a positive self-concept, he or she will grow to become emotionally mature. If this happens, he or she will be able to exhibit empathy for others which will lead to a good relationship with anyone he or she meets. So, parents start enhancing your child’s EQ today and guarantee your child\'s success tomorrow.
