Self Awareness can be a really empowering skill for your child to develop!
Having self awareness helps you to understand yourself better and can give you a greater acceptance and understanding of others.
With self awareness, you can learn new and more positive ways to navigate the world. Self awareness can help with your friendships and family connections as well as your overall physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Below are ways to help increase your self awareness and how you can learn self awareness through your connection with others.
WRITE YOUR THOUGHTS DOWN
Writing your feelings and thoughts down can help you to spot any recurring thought patterns or feelings. It's also a great way to look back and see how far you've come and what you've learnt.
TALK TO OTHERS
Ask people who care about you for feedback on...YOU!
It can be really helpful to see yourself through the eyes of others as they often see things differently.
TRUST YOUR GUT
Try to pay attention to your 'gut feelings' and first thoughts or instincts. Your first instincts or gut feelings are often right so try not to overthink them.
SEEK & LEARN MORE
There are so many amazing books and resources about self awareness and personal development. Take some time to learn more about you. I personally love Michelle Mitchell's range of books and resources for girls and boys.
PAY ATTENTION TO OTHERS
Take notice of other people. We can learn a lot by watching and listening to others. Pay attention to how they do things and what they say, then think about how you would feel, think and react to the same situations.
Take time to think about situations in your life that did not go too well. These are great opportunities to learn about yourself and how you can grow. Try not to blame others and instead look at how you can do things differently.
