As kids grow older, it is important for them to be confident in their day-to-day activities. They should be able to speak for themselves and believe that they can face any situation and rise even when they fall. To achieve this, parents should inculcate some habits into their kids to make them confident as they grow. This article will suggest some ways to make your kids confident.
Allow them to diverse and try out new things
There is tendency that kids can be more confident when they try out new things and participate in other things they have not been doing. For example, let them join swimming class, quiz and debate and so on.
This is important to boost their morale. Praise them when they do good things. Reduce the blaming and concentrate on the good things they have done.
Teach them to say positive daily affirmations
It is inappropriate to allow your kids say negative things even when they are not doing things right. They will have confidence in themselves by saying positive things to themselves. e.g I am strong, I am confident, I am bold and intelligent etc.
Engage your kids in conversations
This will enable your kids to be confident enough to open up to you when they are passing through hard times either in school or among their peer groups. They will also be free to talk in case of abuse or other problems. Parents can seek for their opinions on matters they can understand too.
Don't compare kids
Comparing your kids with other children or siblings comparison may cause low self esteem. To build confidence in your kids, it is good to understand that each child is unique.
