GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) It’s easy to focus on getting supplies and new clothes for back to school, but parents can also encourage kids to have a strong sense of self before heading back to the classroom. Debra Gano of BYOU Magazine says students, especially girls, with good self-esteem tend to do better in school and can also handle bullying better.

Gano says parents can sit down with their children and make a list of their good qualities. Encourage them to discover new qualities and write them down. These notes can be good reminders when a child is having a bad day or just positive messages for throughout the school year.

BYOU Magazine is for girls ages seven to 15 to help build self-esteem and empower them with positive messages.
