Show Me How! School Initiative Nominations Open Today!

The school bells are already ringing, announcing the start of a new school year.

Here at Positive Parental Participation, we are joining the celebration.

We believe that building self-esteem is of critical importance.  Do you?

Studies show that children with a positive self-image:

  • Are more likely to take on new challenges
  • Have greater school success
  • Make friends more easily
  • Do not become bullies or the victims of bullies

Many children are in school for eight hours a day.  Little ones in daycare facilities while their parents are working may be there for even longer periods of time. 

Isn’t it important for teachers and other child-care providers to have the best resources available to succeed in this important task?
