Self confidence is important not just for ourselves as mum, but this is what we want to nurture in our kids.
How can we do this effectively?
I was listening some TED talks the other night about self confidence. I have especially liked “The skill of self confidence” by Dr. Ivan Joseph because he gave the answer to my question.
The tip from his video is great. We have to catch our kids when they do something good and acknowledge them, instead of criticizing them when they did something wrong. Heck, this will work with everyone else too. We can improve any community by focusing on the good things and reinforcing what is good instead of pulling down others for the thing they have failed in.
