The teacher overheard my 6 year old saying "i'm an idiot" today. She has been very hard on herself lately if she gets anything less than 100% or if she gets any answers wrong on her homework.
She is a very emotional child that can get her feelings hurt easily but seems to be hardest on herself. We have always tried to praise her in everything she does but I think this may contribute to sibling jealousy a bit with her baby sister (10 months).
How should I go about trying to raise her self esteem? Am I missing something? help!
