How can you boost self confidence of your children?
Some children are shy and they lack self confidence. How can you as a parent help them become more confident?
As a parent, you set an example. You have to be confident in every aspect of life. Show your children the way to handle things. Teach them what you have gone through in life so they do not make the same mistakes.
This is what I go through with my children and when they compare with their classmates, they said most of them are ignorance of many things that they know and learn from me.
Show confidence in a child and sooner or later they will show it also. Treat them with respect. Don't discipline them using anger, which can cause them to shy away.
Shyness is not always a bad thing. Sometimes it can actually be a great thing. I was shy as a child and so was my husband and several other people I know. All those who were shy turned out well without getting into a ton of trouble. Personality traits can rarely be changed unless there was an issue causing the trait to begin with.
There are many ways to boost confidence to a child. The one I love most is being ready to give a positive comment to their achievement. Also being the first to correct them if they make a mistake without making a fuss. If however they underachieve, gently take the child aside and show the child how he could do whatever he missed, and make the child aware you are there to help whenever possible and should approach you with no fear
Show them how much you RESPECT them, TRUST them and BELIEVE in them. How? By assigning them tasks slowly according to age and whether they succeed at them or fail treat them as winners since they actually took on the task. The result is second in importance.
Great question. Some children are just naturally more sensitive than others. With a child of a highly sensitive temperament, it can be hard for a parent to watch their struggles and it can be a real challenge to get them to interact with their peers. Self-confidence can be nurtured by cultivating their faith in themselves, and the earlier you start, the better you prepare the child for life.
