A parent needs to fulfill a lot of roles, especially when it comes to his or her child. His or her role becomes more important if you're talking about a child's level of confidence.
Children who grow up confident will do better in their lives. They are never afraid to face the challenges head on and are less likely to suffer from depression and pain because they are more optimistic. They can be very independent but not lonely. They can motivate themselves and help others to be inspired as well.
How to Increase the Confidence
Allow them to do simple chores. A little responsibility can go a long way, especially if you're teaching your children how to be more confident. You can never measure the kind of happiness they would normally feel once they get to accomplish something on their own. Moreover, by allowing them to fix their beds or take the bus on their own, you are showing them how to become more independent.
Shower them with praises. If you can criticize and admonish your children when they do something bad, then it's only rightful that you also know how to praise them. A simple "Thank you" or "Good job!" Already already boost their confidence to a whole new level. And because such actions make them feel good, they will be more motivated to do them again and again.
Permit them to pursue their passion. Your children usually do not have a good idea of what they really want to accomplish when they grow up, but they can develop potential or inclining. A child who wants to tap the piano may learn to pursue music later on. As early as possible, you should encourage your kid to pursue their interests. You can enroll them in classes, purchase them some learning materials, or just permit them to explore things with your guidance.
Let them work hard on something. Teach them that things are not to be taken for granted and that they should work hard to get the things they really like. For instance, you may reward them every time they end up doing well in school or when they fix their beds the entire month.
Make sure they feel supported. Children will feel more encouraged to go for the things that really like when they know they can count on people for their support. Take time to be there for your kid, especially during special events such competitions and games. You may also want to be more proactive when it comes to your children's needs.
Helping your kid be more confident is a lifelong process, and sometimes you may feel like you've taken several steps backward. Do not feel so disheartened. You can use subliminal messages for that. Subliminal messages have a unique way of changing your perspective by going through your subconscious. Because you do not have full control of this, the subliminal messages do not get removed. However, you can allow them to surface to your conscious so you can change your negative belief pattern to something positive.
