Teach New SkillsA great way to boost your child’s confidence is to introduce them to things like art, music, sports, crafts, and more to see if they are passionate about a particular subject. Once your child shows interest in a specific area, encourage them to learn new skills and grow their passion!
Give PraiseBe sure to offer praise in a constructive manner instead of your praise being results-based. Focus on progress, attitude, and effort! This specific type of praise often results in your child putting in more effort, working toward their goals, and trying new things.
Let Your Child FailJust because you fall short of your goal doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. Teach your children how to cope with failure to prepare them for success later in life.
- Don’t compare your child’s progress to others
- Be a good role model
- Avoid harsh criticism
- Develop their strengths
- Set goals with your child
Building self-confidence in your child will empower them to try new things and meet new people.
