Ep 18 - Understanding and Developing Self Worth in Teens with Margarita Donies
In this episode of the Parent Teen Mindset Show, Forrest and Beau interview licensed mental health counselor, Margarita Donies, on the subject of SELF WORTH.
As we all know, a low sense of self-worth at minimum will prevent our teens from being more outgoing, trying new things, meeting new people, and will make them feel "less" in school and in life. At its worst, a low self worth can cause teens to fall to peer pressure, become victims of abuse and bullying, and cause a teen to settle for the lowest common denominator in school and in life.
When a teen has high sense of self worth, they are more apt to try new things, to speak and act confidently, to be a leader, to make new friends, and to make choices based on their sense of who they are and their core values.
Obviously we want our teen to have as much self worth as possible, but how do we get there?
Why is it that some teenagers have high self-esteem and some struggle with it?
What role does the teens parents and environment play in developing self worth?
How can we help develop our teens sense of value, self worth, and self esteem?
These are all questions that Margarita answers in this podcast episode.
