First, assist your child in his attempt to engage on self-awareness. Self-knowledge is a life-long process and it should start in his/her early years. The child should know his strengths and limitations, talents, giftedness and weaknesses. For instance, you can make your child realize his or her capacity to do things on his or her own by telling him or her "you can do it." This is one way for the child to understand his/her capacity. The more the child knows these, the more he/ she can also understand others.
