Self esteem helps us to achieve, make friends and be happy.
Few children who have persisting primitive infant reflexes have high self esteem. This can be an additional problem to add to the reflex issues. As children become more aware of their problems, self esteem starts to slide away. It is best to work on the reflexes before a sense of failure sets in and has become established. Avoidance behaviour, “I can’t do it” or refusal can become a habit.
This is one of the reasons that we would recommend early intervention before your child becomes aware that they are falling behind.
