My Fears And Strengths Worksheet
Worksheet published on June 21st, 2023
Children find it hard to cope with things they do not understand. There are many people, places, and things in the world that scare children, and when children are afraid they feel lost, alone, and vulnerable.
A fearful child will have a hard time developing the confidence they need to face their fears, but helping them discover their strengths can help with building self-esteem, boosting confidence, and encouraging them to take action when they are afraid.
It is helpful for a child to learn how to face their fears. Helping a child feel encouraged to use their strengths increases their ability to feel equipped and capable of confronting what is scaring them. It can also help with building self-esteem and a sense of security, which helps the child feel confident when faced with difficult things.
