Ways to support healthy self-esteem for children and youth...❤️
Welcome to the 'Supporting Self-Esteem' edition of Myles Ahead's curated Educator Resources. The links below include recommended resources to help students build healthy self-esteem, especially within the midst of peer pressure and social media.
Developed by the Child Mind Institute, check out these video series for middle school and high school students, covering the following topics (including activities): Understanding Feelings, Relaxation Skills, Understanding Thoughts, Managing Intense Emotions, and Mindfulness.
In collaboration, the Dove Self-Esteem Project and Discovery Education developed evidence-based classroom resources focused on health, social-emotional learning (SEL), and body confidence to "empower 4th and 5th grade students to be confident inside and out."
Developed by Plan Canada, check out these Confident Meworkshop sessions, including "class discussions, small-group activities, engaging videos, and activity worksheets." There is also a Proud to Be Me workshop session "specifically designed for LGBTQ2SIA+ youth and allies aged 10 – 17."
