How to Build Confidence in Your Child

Building confidence in children is difficult if you have not built it within yourself. Standing up for oneself and being confident in one’s opinions makes you a good role model for your child as he or she builds those same skills.

Several strategies can help your child build confidence. Being confident yourself, avoiding raising your child with illusions, allowing your child to make choices, and teaching him or her to evaluate situations rationally can all build confidence that your child can take into every part of his or her life.

Children copy our actions as they learn about the world. If you can confidently handle difficult social situations, your child will watch and learn to do so as well. If you are unhappy and uncertain, your child may be as well.
