For parents: The concept of self-worth
For children to develop self-worth they need adults who nurture the children in their care. Children read body language and facial expressions of their trusted adults and internalise this as self-worth. They need to see facial expressions that show interest and delight in them, body language that shows warmth, connection and safety.
