Raising A Confident Child: A 2020 Resolution Worth Sticking To
The new year is an opportunity for parents to implement new strategies to instill
resilience and confidence in their children. Confident children believe in them-
selves and are able to face new challenges—essential factors in creating a joyful
and fulfilling life.
Here are four practical and effective strat-
egies that parents can implement to build
their child’s confidence:
1. Make time to play
Playtime is one of the best parenting in-
vestments you can make. The time you
spend with your child shows them that they
are valuable and worth your time.
2. Provide them with chores
Children need opportunities to practice
life skills and feel valued within the fam-
ily. Make chores a fun game by using a tool
like My Starry Chart, a new responsibility
game and multi-educational chore chart for
kids. This game, approved by child devel-
opment experts, teaches kids goal setting,
math, the calendar year and more.
3. Give them your attention
Boost their self-worth by simply mak-
ing eye contact when talking with them.
Actively listening and engaging in conver-
sations they care about sends the message
that they are important to you.
4. Acknowledge their feelings
Help them get comfortable with their
emotions by accepting them without
judgement. Validating their feelings will
make them feel heard. And share your own
feelings, too, which will help give them the
confidence to express their own.
By spending quality time together, giv-
ing them more responsibility and provid-
ing emotional support, you can help your
child feel good about themselves and the
world around them. Now that’s a resolution
worth sticking to.
