Give them choices. Giving children options within those that are preselected by you makes them feel empowered. It could be as simple as offering the option of eggs or pancakes for breakfast. Learning to make choices while your child is young, helps him to prepare for the more difficult choices that he willface as he grows.
Encourage them to get involved in some sporting activities. This is not meant for boys alone. If you notice that your girl child has interests in soccer, let her join her school’s soccer team. Sports also has a way of boosting your child’s confidence. There is a sense of accomplishment a child gets after winning a medal in a sporting competition. Sports also help a child to keep fit.
Most importantly give consent to whatever your child has the passion for. Every child is excellent at a particular skill. Encourage your child to use their talent the best way they can. There is no greater feeling than the feeling you get of being special. However, this should not be used as an excuse to allow your child, especially the teenagers to do whatever they fell like such as keeping late nights, drinking or smoking and everything else teenagers do out mischief.
Coach your children on the importance of establishing relationships. And also maintaining only the relationships that matter and also letting them know the disadvantages of keeping wrong relationships. Some relationships are not worth sustaining. Teach them to let go when it is necessary.
Any child struggling with the problem of low self-esteem can be talked into confidence but it takes patience, consistency, and optimism. The parents/ward should work on themselves too if they want their children to walk, talk and live with confidence. The mindset of an individual can make or break a person. The mindset of your children should be moulded into the desired shape. Always remember never to compare your child with another child or compare the abilities of siblings. Let your child develop his self-confidence at his/her pace. Surely time will tell, your child will be better.
