Build self-confidence in children

Tyler Baker

Some people courageously dare to take on challenges, others afraid away from them. The reason lies in the base: self-confidence. With these following 7 tips, parents can help their children build self-confidence.

These situations, which seem very different at first glance, have a lot in common: They are about self-confidence and self-assurance as a prerequisite for an action. You have it or you don’t. And that decides whether the child dares to do something and trusts something. Sometimes it’s about performance, sometimes about courage and sometimes about assertiveness. But what makes one child become self-confident and the other give up?

Build self-confidence in children – 7 tips for parents:

It’s actually very simple (and that goes for the little ones as well as the big ones):

1. Make your own experiences

Let the children have as much immediate, personal (sensory) experiences as possible. It makes a huge difference whether the little child watches how some characters roll a ball on television or whether they do it themselves.

2. Play and discover in nature

Offer motivational affirmation cards for all the senses without having to make something artificial. Playing with such cards is much more interesting and challenges the child more than a smooth, and therefore less exciting, playground device. Children can play and learn through fun. In such type of cards there are different colors and animal pictures. Children play with a card and try to do like that animal. It’s the best way for children to learn about colors and animals and these activities encourage them to become more confident.

3. Sports, sports, sports

Movement and thinking are closely related, right up to old age. So it would be a mistake to make one-sided intellectual offers to the child and to consider romping outside to be a waste of time! (And we haven’t yet considered the other preventive and health-promoting effects of exercise.)

4. Trying, allowing mistakes, moving on

Encourage your child to try new things. Show that you trust them to be able to cope with it and encourage them to try again if it doesn’t work the first time. This also shows the child that it is normal not to get everything right the first time.

5. Practice makes perfect

To put it in a nutshell: Practice makes perfect!” (For the little ones) and: “Success seems to be mainly a question of picking up where others leave off.

6. Praise, but right!

Praise your child for what they do well, but also for trying things out and for not giving up!

7. Yes, you (I) did it!

Emphasize that the child achieved something and that the success was neither a coincidence nor a result of the weather or the day of the week…

Tip: Use your holidays to build up self-confidence

Incidentally, the holidays are very good for building self-confidence in children. So it doesn’t matter if your child takes a break from studying. What they learn on the side and take with them always has an impact on their success at school.
