Raising Confident Kids

Aparna Balasundaram

“Confidence is not ‘they will like me’. Confidence is ‘I’ll be fine even if they don’t’.“

A major concern among parents is that their little darling lacks confidence. Remember, your child’s confidence is the result of positive social and emotional growth. Your words and praise can go a long way in helping him become confident. Help him challenge himself and aim high. A child’s confidence is a trait that changes his approach to life and relationships. “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..,” says Dr Seuss.

Confidence goes hand-in-hand with responsibility. “Your best friend has a teenager who scrapes ice off the car windshield without being asked. Your cousin has a one-year-old that puts her bottle in the sink when she finishes the milk, no reminders needed. Where did all of these wonder children come from?” begins an article in care.com. Remember, it is never too early to teach your munchkin responsibility.

So, how do you teach your son to be responsible? What is the connection between appreciation and self-confidence? How can you better appreciate your little one? What are the ways by which you can increase your son’s self-confidence? How can simply praising your son harm him? What’s the comprehensive way to build his self-esteem? How can he contribute to decision making in the home?
