Many children have low self-esteem and confidence levels. This can be attributed to several reasons. As a parent, you want to do what you can help lift their spirit! Here are are some great ways you can help raise your child’s confidence levels.
Encourage Them To Set Realistic Goals
There is something so incredibly rewarding and satisfying about achieving a personal goal. If you want to help your child feel good about themselves, you can encourage them to set realistic goals for the future. For example, they could be athletic goals, such as being able to shoot a three-point shot in basketball. If your child is not the sports type, it could be something such as finishing a long chapter book.
Give Them Praise
You don’t want to overdo it, but give your child praise when they deserve it. Children like to hear from their parents that they did a good job. However, this does not mean to shower your child with compliments regularly.
Get Them Involved In Sports
Sports can be a real confidence booster for children. You can have them try out a variety of sports to see which ones they enjoy the most. They may discover they are a superb basketball player and their confidence levels should skyrocket. Sports teams are also another great way for children to make friends. If you child has low confidence levels because they have a limited number of friends, get them to join a couple of recreational sports teams.
Have Them Step Outside of Their Comfort Zone
The more you have your child step outside the comfort zone, the more they will understand their capabilities. As a parent, you should always be encouraging your child to try new things. Example of such would be trying a new sport or going off to a camp.
