Self-confidence demands self-discipline. Children learn through the environment and surroundings around them and it is the responsibility of elders to provide them with a positive and expressive environment where they can express themselves freely and confidently. Being a parent, it becomes a huge responsibility to take care of the self-esteem of the child even if you feel low at some stages, it is your duty to boost up the child’s courage to keep their spirit high.
Children are innocent and get a huge impact from their parents when it comes to the ways of spending life. They rely on their parent’s relationship with them to boost and enhance their abilities and skills. If the parents are supportive and understanding then it will be easy for them to bring up a positive personality. Confidence is the ability to overcome fears. It is a skill than can be gained if the child lacks it. They might need your support in this regard.
