Confidence and self-assertion for kids
Many children suffer from low self-confidence. Symptoms can include excessive shyness, separation anxiety, as well as a negative attitude toward themselves and others.
Life is more challenging for a child that lacks confidence.
As parents, we are there to show them what confidence looks like and how they can be assertive without becoming aggressive.
It is important to give children the tools of confidence, because many behaviour problems come from a lack of self-esteem.
Sharing stories about confidence can help to improve behaviour and the way your child thinks
“If we tell children what they should or shouldn’t do, it doesn’t have as much impact on them as a story because a story builds in the experience. It’s a way of teaching them about life.”
