Self-Esteem increases school attendance, and decreases violence and negative attitudes. Peak performances are achieved through boosting self-esteem and motivation. The Self-Esteem Quilt concept is a classroom proven method offering vital Self-Esteem Tools to enhance students' low self-esteem and their learning abilities.

Children's lack of Self-Esteem is one of the reasons for decreased school attendance and behavioral problems in class. In our present world of so much fear and uncertainty, children feel insecure and lash out. The need to bring change about is ever present. Founder and initiator of Self-Esteem Tools for Teachers, Anke Otto-Wolf, an educator herself, has created the Self-Esteem Quilt Concept.

To counter behavioral problems in class and at home, Otto-Wolf's approach is to teach and implement the many facets of self-esteem, just as one would fashion the many patches for a beautiful quilt.

One of the most demanding parts of teaching self-esteem is consistency. Therefore, works sheets for all age groups have been created, as well as complete lessons which easily can be integrated, are ready to boost self-esteem. Entire school projects with different themes for each school month address self-esteem writing competitions, language control, pro-active interactions, self-respect, belief in self, and so much more. The concept also presents solutions for the bully's low self-esteem, and brings hope to children with adhd.

Always concerned with teachers' and parents' needs, and having their best interest at heart, Otto-Wolf has initiated e-classes and seminars with a wide-range of experts at hand during the Q &A sessions. These real and practical guidelines and hands-on assistance are successfully boosting Self-Esteem in children.
