Girls are the most precious and delicate invention of God. Raising girls can be a tough job and the parents who are out there facing problems every single day, shout out to you. You are doing a wonderful job. Nobody can actually tell you the rules of parenting, but every once in a while we just try to help you a little with it. Boosting your girl’s confidence can do wonders in speeding up the progress of your kid in every aspect of life.
Importance of building self-confidence
This is why you cannot neglect the confidence level of your girl, because if she has higher self confidence, then–
- She will be happy and content to be what she is and she will be beautiful in every way possible. Also, confident kids are the happiest.
- She will be always in a comfort zone because she will not be scared of trying out new things and will have leadership qualities also. Other kids will look up to her as an inspiration.
- She will be more successful in fighting depression or in dealing with the regular challenges of life.
- She will be sure of what she is doing in life and self doubt will not hamper her personal and professional growth.
- She will have higher self esteem which will show in the way she carries herself.
Any girl can become what she wants if she has confidence. I cannot oversell the fact the confidence is the ticket to everything – school, college, friends group and work places. And in this scenario, you definitely want your girl to be the best, so here are a certain ways that can help her become the confident human being she always wanted to become–
Praise her whenever and wherever possible
Girls need constant assurance that they are doing well and to be able to continue doing that lifelong, you need to tell your kid that she is brilliant and smart.
Girls are very sensitive, and there are various ways of correcting them if they are wrong, give them a chance to correct themselves and if they are still unable to, help them with it. That is why you are there. Watch your words before they come out of your mouth because they can either make of break your girl.
Talk about things she already feels good about
Girls often have things that they feel really proud of. Inculcate those things in your daily talks, tell her that she is doing great and that she is pretty good at something already. This will help her take over other challenges like it’s a piece of cake.
Let her be what she is
Emphasize on the fact that she is pretty good the way she is, there is absolutely no way you want her to become another ‘you’! Let her get comfortable in her own skin and that is the most natural way for her to feel confident.
Be that role model
You may not realize it, but the kids look up to you way more than you think they do, you are their role model. Enact what you teach her every single day. Chances are she will pick up things by looking at you do them rather than you telling her to do it. Be a confident woman, accept compliments, be comfortable in your own skin. Be you, also, never pretend or lie, the kids are pretty good at figuring that stuff out. And, never be too self-critical, kids may pick that up too.
For all of this to work, you need to start working on it from a very early stage, otherwise the kid will get confused by seeing a drastic changing in her environment. She should never feel that you are over doing it. It should be consistent and natural. Also, try and bring everybody in the house on board with it.
We hope your kid has a confident life and can become an even more confident parent so that the chain never stops. Happy Parenting!
