Building Confidence in our Kids


This quote blew my mind today, "Parents think they can hand children permanent confidence-like a gift- by praising their brains and talents. It doesn't work, and in fact it has the opposite effect. It makes children doubt themselves as soon as anything is hard or anything goes wrong. If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they could do is teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, seek new strategies & keep on learning. That way, their children don't have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence."
