Children do not need to have more and better toys, games, clothes or anything else than their friends. Children need love, approval and a sense that their own uniqueness has a valuable place in the world. In a nutshell – they need to believe in themselves!. Giving approval and encouragement to a child does not encourage pride, arrogance or ego-centricity. Rather, self esteem is a healthy sense of self which incorporates the following: • • • • •

feeling good about yourself believing that you are a worthwhile person accepting yourself as you are knowing that you have a place where you belong in the world believing you can try new things and succeed in them

When these basic psychological needs are not fulfilled, the lack of fulfillment experienced by the individual will manifest in some negative behaviour or attitude. Some common indicators of low self-esteem include: • • • • •

By providing a range of activities and allowing children freedom to choose what activities to tackle, children are given the opportunity to discover what they enjoy and are good at. When a child takes on a task which he finds difficult, parents should encourage him to master the smallest steps (even if a large part of the task is not accomplished successfully). The child’s self esteem gets a huge boost every time he manages to do something for himself. Remember, that every child is unique… not only should each be encouraged to approach things in their own way, but the unique rate of learning of each should also be given the utmost respect. Take joy in celebrating the smallest of steps in the learning process!

THE POWER OF POSITIVE PARENTING

Behaviour problems Eating disorders Destructive and violent behaviour and / or bullying Lack of confidence Possible drug and alcohol abuse at later stage.

Even a baby will sense that it has a special place in this world if it is touched and smiled at in a way that shows real love and care. This feeling of being valued is what brings about ‘attachment’ (the process of bonding with your baby). This is crucial to healthy development, as secure attachments are vital to every human being’s sense of self worth. As toddlers set about developing their understanding of themselves and who they are, they need a lot of encouragement! Every day in the toddler’s life is filled with trying out new things, and every new thing learnt is added to the toddler’s sense of self – what he looks like, what he can do and what he can’t do are all established during this fragile stage in the child’s development. Remember that the toddler’s view of himself depends very much on how adults see him. It is therefore crucial that parents be aware of the huge impact what they say has on the child.

While what we say to children is enormously important it is as important that we listen to them! When a parent allows a child to express his or her ideas, she lets him know that his ideas are worthwhile.

SURVIVING FATHERHOOD I’m a bit schizophrenic when it comes to cars. On the one hand I see them merely as a means of getting from A to B, but I have to admit to a definite feeling of bitterness when forced to downgrade from the level of comfort to which I’ve become accustomed. This is the dilemma I find myself in at the moment. Having spent the last ten years working my way up the corporate ladder, I’ve successfully graduated from a third hand 19-footsack student hatch back to 2L of Turbo Diesel power complete with electric windows, air-con and all the trimmings; not to mention the seven seats…'but this is where the problem lies. Since giving birth to our fourth child last year, my wife has been quick to point out the inadequacies of her basic bucket of bolts, complete with two missing door handles, duct tape to cover the rust holes, one working speaker and most significantly, only four seat belts. I could have another seat belt put in the back, but with two baby seats either side even a midget would feel claustrophobic and at least one of the boys usually has a friend to play, making it even more cosy, so for the last year I’ve had to make peace with the fact that, as a considerate, loving, chivalrous father, the least I could do is trade my own comfort for that of my wife and children. I know it’s the responsible thing to do, but I can’t help feeling a little bitter as I pull up at a traffic light and gaze nonchalantly at the foxy blonde in the next lane. In the old days I used to get a smile back and maybe a playful rev of the engine, but now I get the cursory once over and that knowing look that says “LOSER!” I’ve also taken to parking around the corner when going to business meetings and I have to make extra sure I always have my driver’s licence with me as I’m inevitably the first car to be pulled over at a road block. Of course on weekends I get to drive my car, but then I’m with the wife and kids and I gaze over at the foxy blonde in the next lane at my peril.The only other time I get to drive it is when I have to take it in for its regular service and here I have become somewhat of a celebrity at the local agent as not once, not twice, but three times I’ve had to have the radio sent away only for it to come back with a variety of plastic toys, coins and pieces of paper retrieved from the CD player. I usually do my best to clear the car of visible debris prior to taking it in; using one black refuse bag for toys, clothes, etc and another for rubbish, but I can’t help noticing the look of disgust as the service manager inspects the car, like a CSI complete with white gloves and clipboard, touching only the smallest extremities of the vehicle so as not to disturb the evidence of beach sand, bubble gum and unidentified mouldy objects under the baby seats.

PAGE 30 www.survivalguide.co.za

Collecting the car is an absolute pleasure. It looks and smells as good as new and the long forgotten toys retrieved from various parts of the cars are carefully presented in a zip locked evidence bag. On the short drive home, I slide my window down with the flick of a switch, turn up that awesome stereo sound and give that finely tuned 2L turbo engine a healthy rev. My hand hesitates as I hang the keys on the rack by the door, knowing that tomorrow I’ll be wrestling my way to work in the slow lane, straining to hear the one working speaker over the irritating scream of the 1.1L engine, knowing that my car is about to be turned into another sand pit science experiment.
