My Daughter Struggles With Self-Esteem, So I Do These 10 Things to Make Her Feel More Confident
Several years ago, my 5-year-old was in a very dark place in her life. At the time, she was having difficulty with school and she was in the process of being diagnosed with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). She was suffering from depression, and it took a toll on her self-esteem. As you can imagine, it was heartbreaking for me to see my precious little girl in so much pain — pain that she couldn't explain and I couldn't understand.
