How to help a child build self-confidence

Just raising your children and hoping that they will eventually do well in life is not quite enough. As parents, we must be aware of the importance of self-confidence and how much it is a part of a child's ability to successfully become a worthy adult with a good future.

Self-esteem and confidence in one's own abilities are really important for a child's life and development. With their actions and support, parents can help their children build self-confidence and self-esteem at a good level.

Praise the child

When you notice the child's effort or his successes in an endeavor, always encourage and reward his efforts with "well done, you're doing great" for example.Never ignore his accomplishments, because that's how he'll learn that whatever he does, he never does it right. He will never be satisfied with himself and will be too critical of himself. It is possible that the effect is even the opposite - low self-esteem and poor self-esteem.

Bragging is also wrong from an educational point of view, because it also creates an inaccurate self-image in the child who believes too much and does not know how to assess the possibilities. Often such children look at others with arrogance and think that they have more gifts than they actually have. Even failures are not able to make them analyze the situation and not repeat their mistakes. They just don't realize they let them in.

To avoid extremes, give measured praise to the child.

Take time to play

Through games, children improve their role models and build their value system, their communication skills, their ability to fit into society.Peer games should also take center stage. Therefore, try not to take away the child's play time. It is important for his self-esteem.

Wait before offering help

The child needs experience to learn to realize his mistakes and find a way to correct them. Don't rush to offer your help when the child gets into trouble. Let him try to handle himself first. If he fails you can help him. Avoid doing things for him because that's just not helping him.
