How to Build Self Confidence?
Encourage Risk Taking in Your Children

Encourage Risk Taking

Have lots of open-ended conversations with your children to help them question how they would cope with different situations.

Sprinkle you speech with open ended questions - use the six starting words.
How, Why, What, Who, When, Where.

Engage in conversations that begin with -

  • What do you think will happen if you do that, or don't do that?
  • How would you handle it?
  • Where would you go?
  • Why would you suggest that?
  • When do you think that's appropriate?
  • Who would you ask?

  • This encourages your children to think for themselves.

    Listen to how you speak to your kids

    Do you tell, or do you suggest?

    Do you talk or do you listen?

    Building self confidence is about building self esteem. Self esteem tools come through communication.
