Messing With Confidence

Confidence. Even as an adult it can be challenging. Confidence in a child? You don’t want to mess them up!! Doctors sharing some of the biggest mistakes that parents make that hurt your child’s confidence.

  1. Letting them escape responsibility (EX: chores). Even when they fight you, it shows them they’re competent.
  2. Preventing them from making mistakes. It’s important to let them fail and feel rejection.
  3. Protecting them from their emotions. Don't try to fix everything when they’re sad/hurt.
