Some children can be very hard on themselves. If your child feels like a failure if she’s not the “best,” help her readjust her perspective. Be sympathetic, but remind her that no one is perfect. Point out your child’s strengths and help her learn from her mistakes. Teach her some affirmative self-talk, such as, “I’m proud of how hard I tried.” And emphasize that you love her no matter what she does or doesn’t do.
