How do I build my child´s self esteem?

Being emotionally close

Should you be emotionally close to your kids? Do you find it difficult to show your emotions to them? Remember that, for your child, you are a window to the world. If you hide emotions in order to be strong or manly, your child is often likely to do the same. Wouldn't you rather that they feel free to express their feelings? Not in an over-reactive way, but in order to avoid becoming insular (cold) to those that love them.
