How jigsaw puzzles can build your
child's self esteem

Nowadays, kids are exposed to so much technology time, even their time at school is spent on the screen, but puzzles are a great way to build their own self esteem and self worth. Sounds strange?

Puzzles can be used as a wonderful and meaningful tool that can teach kids so many skills and most of the time, subconsciously. They are having too much fun to realize that they are actually learning (in more ways than expected!)

Top ways doing jigsaws build your child's self esteem


1. Sense of achievement

Once kids have completed their own puzzle, it gives them a great sense of accomplishment knowing that they have completed and built it.

2. Develop and grow deeper connections
Some kids like to do puzzles alone, however there can also be an opportunity for family and friends to join in. This allows kids the time to connect and communicate with you while not even realizing that they are opening up more communication channels.

3. Encouragement
Puzzles are a great tool to use to encourage your kids so that they know they can complete and achieve something. Giving verbal encouragement to our kids will allow them to also try something more challenging.

4. Parent / Child bond
Studies have found that a strong parental connection in a person's teen years predicts higher self-esteem and resilience as an adult and lower rates of many mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and other mood disorders.

5. Deep sense of self worth
Kids with high self worth tend to have higher respect, confidence and values. Self worth is not a fleeting moment, but rather an in depth rooting of true belief in oneself.
