    what brings in maximum self awareness in the child and how can the parents , school, society help in empowering the child with self awareness?

      Teach the child about the inner self, teach them to listen to the still, small voice within. This is the essence of our being.

    What do you mean by 'self-awareness?

    I actually think a lot of kids are too self aware.  Their world is very small, when something small happens like a best friend not being their friend anymore it shatters them.  They have to be shown the solution that they can make new friends and that other friend not being friendly isn't necessarily about them.

      ALQX brings up a good point: what do you mean by self awareness?

      It's hard to offer any thoughts if the question isn't clearly stated. 

      Do you mean: self esteem? as in how they feel about themselves?
      OR, did you mean self awareness-as in how aware they are about who they are?

      Druid Dude is on the right track with response to the second.

      If the parent knows about awareness and experiencing it/practicing awareness themselves, then the parent will find the way to show/teach it to his child.
      But if the adult has no idea of what it is,e than he/she lives in a reacting way himself and will raise up the same reactive kids.
