Childen develop confidence when they are loved and encouraged to try new things.
Confidence doesn’t come easily. It takes practice.

Do you walk right in full of confidence? Or do you try to slip in without being noticed?
In life, we admire those who do their tasks confidently.

Where does that confidence begin? Developing self-confidence starts very early.
It’s the parents’ role to get kids on the right track toward becoming confident people.
To help that process, parents should always offer more praise than criticism. That can be done by focusing on the child’s strengths.
When children make mistakes, their parents should still let them know that they are loved.
Here are three simple steps for building self-confidence. First, set goals: make goals realistic and attainable-to maximize feelings of success. Next imagine yourself-or visualize-performing your tasks and activities perfectly, to maxirnize the potential of success, Finally use verbal encouragement and positive
self-talk. By verbally encouraging yourself (e.g. with phrases such as, “I’m doing really well today!") you’ll reinforce feelings of self-confidence.
