October 11, 2016 | Parent Talk: Raising I-Can Kids
We all want to instill a can-do attitude in our children so that they can take on new challenges and learn to believe in their own competency regardless of the situation.
It is through a sense of competence that self-confidence developed. Children develop confidence, not because we parents consistently tell them how wonderful they are, but through their independent achievements, large and small. Words of encouragement are important, but words of praise ring empty unless they refer to a specific effort, achievement or ability, particularly if newly acquired or nurtured.
Learn how to instill that all-important sense of confidence and can-do attitude in your children, the sense of “I can!” confidence is developed, regardless of the challenge.
