When a child feels self-confident, they do better overall. Confidence is the one trait students should never go without. Here you'll find some tips to help boost your child's self-confidence.

Confident Children Are Better Learners

Self-confidence is the ability to believe in yourself. There’s no need to be the best player or get the highest grades if you know you’re capable of doing your best and you’re willing to take risks. It’s necessary for students to maintain a high level of self-confidence. Sometimes students do poorly in class not because they’re not smart enough, but because they don’t feel confident enough to make it. You can help your child be more self-confident and more independent with these simple tips that The Tutoring Center, Auburn CA has gathered for you.

Let Your Child Make Decisions

If you make all of your child’s decisions for them, you’re making them even more dependent on you. Start by letting them make some decisions, like what they’re going to snack on after school or what clothes they’re going to wear. As they get older, let them make decisions that require more thought. Being able to decide and take responsibility for their choices makes children feel more confident and independent.

Remind Them of Their Abilities and Strengths

It’s easy for a child to negatively compare themselves to their peers and think only of their own flaws and weaknesses. You should remind your child of all the great qualities they have. Sometimes they just need to hear it. Maybe your child isn’t as good at sports as they would like to be, but they are fantastic writers. Remind them that we all have different abilities, and we can always get better with hard work and perseverance. Your child should always feel proud of their achievements.

Encourage Them to Try New Things

Learning something new and getting out of their comfort zone can help your child be more confident. They will never know if they’re good at something if they don’t try it. You should encourage your child to take more risks and try new things. Even if it’s something as simple as tasting a new food or wearing something they usually wouldn’t. They can also learn a new language or sign up for tutoring classes to improve their academic performance. Maybe learning a new way to study or understand the material they see in class will give their grades a boost.

Praise Effort and Perseverance

You should praise your children and give them positive feedback in a realistic way. Children are not always going to succeed and they won’t always get the results they hope for, and that’s completely OK. You should reassure your child that even though the results weren’t what they wanted, their effort was great. If your child doesn’t have a talent for something, don’t lie to them telling them they’re great at it. Instead, you should praise their effort, perseverance, and willingness to try something new.

Help Them Find Their Passion

Encourage your child to discover their passion. Invite them to explore their interests and develop a sense of identity. You should respect your child’s interests, even if they’re different from what you like. Seeing their own talents, knowledge, and abilities grow is a huge confidence booster.

Allow Them to Fail

You won’t always be there to fix your child’s problems and mistakes or to make everything perfect. You should let your child fail from time to time. Children learn through trial and error. You can help them look at their failures as a learning experience and encourage them to try again and again. Setbacks are a regular part of life, and they should never stop your child from trying again until they get what they want or get to where they want to be.

Love Them Unconditionally

Don’t let your child feel like your love is based on their behavior or their results. Make sure your child knows you love them and that you have their back even when you’re mad at them. Mistakes or poor behavior don’t make your child any less valuable or loved.

Be a Role Model

You are your child’s role model. Show your child you love and appreciate yourself, and that even though you make mistakes, you keep on going. Try to keep a positive outlook on life and teach your child to do the same. Keep in mind that tasks tackled with positive thinking and optimism tend to be more successful.
