How To Get The Best Education Possible: Tip #34

A child needs to have self-confidence.  In order to develop this all important character in your child is to get him/her involved in an activity that they are interested in and show real promise.  That brings us to tip #34.

Tip #34: Get your children involved in extra-curricular activities that will build self-confidence.

Mastering a skill at an early age builds confidence and self-esteem. When a child is able to play an instrument, draw or paint, perform ballet or tap, or any other number of individual activities they foster and grow their earned sense of accomplishment and develop a sense of self and pride. Group activities also have an important place in a child's development, but when they can master something individually, they are empowered and reinforced with an unequivocal self-confidence builder. The sense of individual confidence and ability begins a familiarity with earned success that will be needed later in life as they grow up and their world's become more complex and demanding. So, whenever possible have your child participate and master an activity that they alone can demonstrate excellence. It will pay big dividends in their future. Some more examples include: golf, tennis, gymnastics, photography, bowling, singing and chess.

Debra, I agree with you 100% - a child must have self-confidence. A child who does not develop self-confidence, will grow up into an adult without one.

While reading you I felt myself wishing to be a child who have luck to address you as his teacher.
You defined the place of self-confidence so rightly. It is just obligatory to move anywhere.
Art by Tomas is glad to bow to you.
