Long-term good health is less an accident than the result of good habits and wise choices.
To enjoy good health now and in the future, children must learn how to eat, exercise, sleep, control stress and be responsible for personal cleanliness and reducing the risk of disease. They also need to be aware of what to do in an emergency and when to say "no".
Eating nutritious foods and understanding the relationship between physical and emotional health will help a child grow up healthy. A child's ability to learn and the chances for a longer and more productive life can be greatly improved by developing and following good health practices.
A child's mental and emotional health is just as important as their physical health. From the earliest moment, they need to feel they are special and cared about.
A child who enjoys good mental and emotional health will approach new situations with confidence. When they are comfortable with themselves, they can express their emotions in a positive way. As they learn to value themselves and develop confidence in their ability to make responsible decisions, they are building a sense of self-worth or self-esteem.
Parents and teachers share the responsibility for helping children build self-confidence. A confident child is more successful. Confidence in one's ability to learn new and difficult skills can affect future achievement too. Developing a trusting relationship with a child, establishing open communication, and recognising achievements are important.
When children know they can do something well, they feel special. - From Kids Source
