A positive sense of self is one of the most valuable gifts you can gift your children. But have you noticed that your teen feels insecure, critical of herself, and lacks confidence? Does your child feel self-conscious about his smile? What can Invisalign do for your teen’s confidence?
Why Self-Esteem is So Important
Children who feel good about themselves develop into happy, productive adults. Why?
Self-confidence and self-acceptance help kids:
- accept new challenges instead of feeling unsure of themselves
- persevere through failure instead of giving up easily
- stand up for themselves to their peers instead of allowing themselves to be mistreated
Positive feelings about yourself don’t happen by chance. And it won’t come from praising your child for everything they do. As a parent, you have the primary role to empower your teen to greater self-confidence and self-respect. How can Invisalign help you?
How Invisalign Improves Self-Esteem
Making just one positive change to an improved smile can change your teen’s life in a big way. See how Invisalign treatment affected real-life patients by watching this video:
Achieving a straight, perfect smile can start a chain reaction that ends with more confidence. Here’s how:
Step 1: Setting a Goal
Instead of doing everything for your kids, teach them to become competent to do things on their own. When they see good things come from effort, it will help them feel good about themselves.
Invisalign treatment gives your teen an opportunity to take pride in the accomplishment of a beautiful smile.
Step 2: Praising Effort
Commending your child is important but doing it wisely is vital. Instead of focusing on results or qualities, offer most of your praise for effort, progress, and attitude. This will encourage kids to work hard to achieve goals and not give up.
When you see your teen responsibly wearing their clear aligners day after day without being reminded, commend them!
Step 3: Feeling Special
Experiences help children recognize their own unique talents, qualities, and strengths. When they feel comfortable in the way they look, they feel accepted by others and capable of anything.
Invisalign can give your teen the confidence to come out of her shell, take on the world and accomplish anything.
