5 strategies to impower teenagers Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is one’s overall subjective sense of personal value or worth. In other words, how much one appreciates and loves himself. Each and everyone has self-esteem. It is cumulative thoughts that people have about themselves and it plays a very important role in every kind of works. Self-esteem can be categorized into 02 categories. One is healthy or positive self-esteem (I am good, I am worthy) and another one is weak or negative self-esteem (I am unloved, I am not good). Self-esteem can be defined by the following factors:

  • Self-confidence,
  • Feeling Competence,
  • Acceptance
  • Appreciating,
  • Identity,
  • Sense of belonging.

Self-esteem is very much important for all types of works. Sometimes achievement depends mostly on self-esteem. It is a vital fact in life. So all should develop this among themselves from childhood.

Self-esteem is very much important for the proper mental growth of the kids. It builds confidence and motivates doing something good in life. Every parent must help their kids to develop self-esteem among themselves. Teenage is the best time to nurture kids. Teenage is like clayey soil which is used to make any type of shape by the blacksmith. Like the blacksmith, parents should teach their kids the good things and let them build up positivity and self-esteem in themselves. If a teenager, grows up with healthy self-esteem, there will be no doubt he will be successful in his career as well as life. He may fail once or twice or maybe thrice but he will learn how to get up and start again.

If parents fail in the kids’ development stage, it will suffer the kids and parents for the rest of their life. So when parents think they are not good enough to do so, they need to call the professionals to do the job for them without taking any chance. The professionals I am telling about are the teenager coaches. Teenager coaching is not only for kids. Even parents can also attend sessions from them. Teenager coaching is a lifelong solution for the parents and the kids.

Mohammed Delawer, a teenager coach in Dubai said that “Don’t let the teenage wasted by not developing self-esteem in your kids because their career mostly depends on it.”

Some kids get healthy self-esteem by born, some achieve naturally and some need to learn. But it needs to be enhanced, developed, and supervised by the parents or professionals.

There are many possible ways to enhance self-esteem. 5 major strategies to enhance the self-esteem of teenagers are as follows:

  1. Unconditional Love: Parents’ love must be unconditional. Parents need to assure their kids that their love does not depend on their results, performance, or any other factors. When kids will realize that they do not have any risk of losing their parents’ love to them, the confidence level inside them will develop automatically. Sometimes burden and fear decrease confidence. So unconditional love will increase their confidence level as well as self-esteem.
  2. Stop social comparison: It is a very serious issue. Sometimes parents compare their kids with other kids in society or school or college. If other kids get higher marks than their kids or achieve something that their kids could not achieve, they often get frustrated and give a lecture to the kids. But one day this frustration of parents will transfer to the kids and the impact will be very bad. Comparing with other kids affect the brain and mind of the kids. So parents need to be very careful regarding the fact. Parents need to think positively and also teach their kids to think positively. They need to acknowledge their kids in small success, encourage them to learn from failure, and also focus on individual improvement.
  3. Let them fail and teach them to start over again: Sometimes failure is more valuable than winning. Parents need to learn this and also teach this lesson to their kids. Teenagers must keep in mind that, failure is not the end. Rather it is a new beginning. They should not be sad when they fail. They should collect the good things from the failure and restart again. When they will learn it, their self-esteem will go beyond the expectation.
  4. Let them solve their problems: Parents need to be supportive, it’s true. But they need to leave their kids alone to solve their problems. Solving problems makes a kid ready for his life. For example, if a kid never learns to walk because he has been carried around by his parents all the time, he will never learn to jump. Similarly, kids need to find their problems and try to solve them by themselves. Parents might give suggestions to their kids, but kids need to reach the ultimate solution on their own. It will help the kids to enhance the self-esteem.
  5. Take guidance from a teenager coach: Teenager coaching is one of the branches of life coaching. Teenager coaching is designed in such a way so that kids get confident among themselves while kicking out all the frustration, stress, and anxieties. The role of a teenager coach to enhance the self-esteem of any teenager cannot be explained in few lines. To guide parents and their kids properly, teenager coaching has been introduced by highly trained professionals with lots of experience. They guide the parents to nurture their kids and also help the kids to self-development. They help the kids to be self-dependent, confident and find out their interests, let them set a proper goal for their life, and guide them to reach that goal. The teenager coaching includes:
  • Building confidence as well as healthy self-esteem,
  • Parenting,
  • Setting and achieving goals,
  • Problem-solving,
  • Stress managing,
  • Sharing problems,
  • Career choosing,
  • Increase creativity,
  • Becoming resilience,
  • And many more.

5 tips to help Teenagers To Manage Stress

5 tips to help Teenagers To Manage Stress

The opposite word of relaxation is stress. That means if you are not calm, relax, and chilled you are under stress. Stress is a very natural term for the human body. It is a kind of pressure that can be felt by anybody physically or emotionally or both. Teenagers can also feel stress.  Stress can make people sick physically or anxious, frustrated, and angry mentally. Stress sometimes can make you motivated and sometimes demotivated. It gives you a push to move on and do something good or pull you down from doing something good. Yes, you deserve a break. Stress without break is not good for anyone. But, you should be aware that, stress is a must for life. No matter how carefree you are, how successful you are, you will feel it or have already felt it but you didn’t realize it. The conclusion is, you have to go through stress at a certain point in your life. So it is your duty not to run away from stress. Rather you need to learn to manage your stress.

Many research shows that the best time to learn any psychologically managerial ability is teenage. So every parent must help their kids to develop their mental health. Stress management ability is a great virtue that can be earned naturally and also can be learned by anyone. But it is a fact that during the teenage period most of the kids have their parents to hold their back. Besides parents, there are certain groups of professionals who are dedicatedly waiting to help teenagers to overcome every obstacle they can face in their life. They are the teenager coaches. Teenager coaching is held by professionals with vast knowledge and tons of experience and they help your kids to grow their stress management level. Not only kids can be benefitted from teenager coaching rather it is so much helpful for the parents. Because parenting is also a major part of the life of the parents which they can learn from teenager coaches.

Teenage can be considered as the development period. Mohammed Delawer, a teenager coach in Dubai said, “Teenage is the best time for mental and physical development. How strong they will be in future is mostly depends on how properly they were guided at their teenage”.

There are many ways that help teenagers to manage their stresses. 5 most effective tips to help teenagers to manage their stresses are as follows:


  1. Identify the reason for stress and teach them sharing: Before looking for any solutions, it is better to find out the problems. Because without finding the question, you cannot reach the answer. Parents need to identify why their kids are under stress. The issue may not be too complicated as the kids are behaving. So parents need to openly talk to them and teach them sharing is not bad. Rather it gives relief in mind.

This can happen through an open dialogue between parents and their teenagers but parents need to avoid encouraging their teenagers to not express their feelings for example avoid things as;

  • Stop crying you are a man!
  • It is ok just let it go.


  1. Identify the signs and help them to be distracted: When kids are disturbed by something and feeling stressed, some signs might be visible in their behavior such as sweating, nail-biting, get sick, and many more. Parents need to observe them properly and help them to distract for that particular time. It will give them relief for a shorter period but it will be so much effective. Distraction is sometimes good and it brings so much positivity and energy to you, but sometimes it is so much bad to destroy your whole life. So in this case, distraction is a much effective way to get relief for a shorter time.


  1. Teach them to Meditate and Exercise: Meditation and Regular exercise is a great way to relax and decrease stress. They can help ease stress and improve concentration. They give peace to the mind, relax the body, and improve your ability to handle stress. There is no alternative to meditation and exercising regularly. Not only kids, even at the old ages people must do it to lead a healthy life with a refreshing mind. So parents need to make meditation and exercise hobbies for the kids.


  1. Let kids solve their problems: It is obvious that kids want their parents to solve their problems. But if parents dive in to solve every little problem, their kids don’t have any chance to learn healthy coping skills. I am not telling you to leave your kids alone with their problems. Every parent must help their kids. I am telling the parents to make your kids hero and be the sidekick of your kids. Let the kids try to solve their problems and guide them when they need you. With that, they will gain confidence that they can deal with stressors.


  1. Get teenager coaching from a professional: This term may not be so much familiar to you. But it is a vital one. A professional teenager coach plays a major role to develop the stress management skills of your kids. The professionals will take care of your kids as a small plant. They will nurture them and guide them as much as they required. And let them bloom like a mature and healthy tree. They will not solve the problems of your kids directly. Rather they will guide your kids properly to solve them on their own. Along with kids, their parents can also attend the teenager coaching. Teenager coaching teaches parenting properly. It helps to grow good relations and understanding between kids and parents.

Teenager coaching in Dubai is very effective for teenagers and as well as their parents and it is getting famous simultaneously all over the world. Dubai is one of the best places for teenager coaching. The professionals having a lot of experiences will help the teenagers to manage the stresses and as well as the parents to learn to parent properly.

      Which communication skills required for your job?

      Which communication skills required for your job?

      You do interact with people in your daily life activity, whether it is work, family, friends to convey your ideas and share your feelings. Every interaction is communication and how you do communicate is a way of communication.

      What are communication skills?

      Communication is the bridge between a sender and receiver, communication skills are the capabilities of giving and receiving information effectively and efficiently to achieve the desired outcomes. Communication skills are an important interpersonal skill in almost every aspect of life, in the workplace, the importance of communication skills has become a crucial part of the needed interpersonal skills for the employees and leaders.


      Interpersonal skills or in other words the soft skills became one of the most important skills that you do need to advance your career not only your technical skills. In my career coaching program, effective communication has been covered intensively with my clients because building effective communication in their workplace support and empower their career development goals.


       Why communication skills are important for your job?

      That difficult conversation you had with your boss, the tough meeting you just attended, the pressure you been through in your yearly performance review, that angry client who was complaining over the phone on the bad service he got. Theses are examples of event where communication skills have not been demonstrated efficiently.


      Effective communication skills empower you with the ability to convey your message is a clear, assertive, and simple way to the other. It enables you to perceive the meaning of the information you are receiving from the others in a greater level of self-aware and controlled emotion.


      Let’s take an example: in the meeting with your boss, his tone of voice, body language, words being used, will get inputted in your mind as the receiver. Your mind will provide you with the interpretation of that information the results in feedback which for example your boss is angry and not happy with your performance. You start to react in a defense mood which could include an explanation, excuses, lose of temp, or just freeze and nod your head. This will not stop here! Your boss became the receiver his mind interpreted the information from your words, tone, body language, and response. And most probably the upper hand wins the debate. This is a typical scenario of a WIN/LOSE situation.


      Learning how to communicate efficiently, enhance your interpersonal skills and the art of effective communication. Communications skills are one of the important aspects you need to focus in your career development plan.

      Which communication skills required for your job?

      Verbal communication, nonverbal communication, and written communications are the main three types of communication we are using in the workplace and life in general.

      Verbal communications:

      Verbal communication is the interpersonal skill of how you deliver the information and receive them, it is more than just talking. It covers the words and tone being used. It is important in almost all jobs but mostly for employees who extensively communicate with individuals, such as Call center, customer services, trainers, public relations needs verbal communications to be part of their interpersonal skills

      • Speak clearly and simply
      • Make sure your voice matches what you want to say
      • Keep your goals in mind
      • Improve your empathy
      • Speak for yourself by using the word “I”

      Nonverbal communications

      Effective communication is not only the way you talk. This is a mistake; nonverbal communication is as important as verbal communication. Nonverbal means facial expression, eye contact, body language, posture, and any other way people can maintain effective communication without using language.

      Sales, marketing, consultants, public speakers are examples of jobs that need strong verbal communications skills impeded into their interpersonal skills toolkit.

      Nonverbal communications one of the major aspects I cover in my Executive coaching sessions with Middle and senior management clients.

      • Active listening to others says
      • Build the rapport
      • Be aware of your posture
      • Take full, deep breaths


      Written communications

      we are heavily relying on writing in the form of Emails, reports, or even WhatsApp messages. From the email you do receive, you sense and feel what the sender’s intention is, correct? Wither he/she is complaining, accusing, appreciating, etc.

      written communication is a common interpersonal skill among all types of jobs, however, jobs as a secretary, admin, copywriter, auditors will need to ensure acquiring this skill for effective communication.

      • The intent of the message
      • Straight to the point
      • Accurate grammar
      • Simple and clear
