Confidence is not based on your actual ability to succeed in the task, but based on your belief in the ability to succeed. What an eye-opener-belief and perception are everything!

5 ways to develop a confident child
- Let them make their own decisions
You can start as soon as possible. Give your children the opportunity to choose and make their own decisions. Don’t always tell them what to do, but guide them so they can make their own decisions.
2. Listen more and speak less
It sounds simple, but letting children talk and solve problems is a great way to help them build self-confidence. Talk less, try to listen more to what they say, want and do, don’t disturb them, and give them solutions.
3. Give them choices and let them explore
In another article about Hobby pursued I have written about the importance of children exploring things on their own. As simple as their hobbies or activities, let them participate in the process. Exploration and choice will bring critical thinking and creativity, which in turn will increase confidence and courage.
4. Support them anyway
As parents, we need to let our children know that we support them no matter what. They may make decisions and choose to do the wrong thing, but in the process they may learn valuable lessons from their failures and move on. Children whose parents stand with them at every step grow up more confident and certain about themselves. Encouraging and always being there may be different.
5. Show them your unconditional love
Through your words or actions, always show your unconditional love. When things go well or things may not go well, share your love, joy and happiness with them. Love is the foundation of everyone’s self-confidence, especially children who seek parental approval.
In addition to the above 5, plus the following tips to help them increase their self-confidence and happiness!

Emphasize and believe that hard work is more important than results. Between children with higher intelligence and children with diligence, encourage diligence instead of intelligence. Remember, this is not only your innate ability, but also how you use your ability to gain confidence and ultimately succeed.
- Put their efforts above results/rewards
In the field of education, we want children to pay attention to processes and products. Always emphasize effort rather than results. Emphasizing the process over the product leads to hard work, confidence and courage.
- Help them build confidence
I believe that faith makes a person stronger, braver, and stronger, because knowing that the supreme power is by your side. Start early and raise your children with the beliefs or beliefs you follow. They can always make their own choices when they grow up.
