How To Help Your Child Be A Confident Student And Person

Mar. 22, 2018

It's hard not to jump for joy when your child gets an A on a test or announces that he or she won a spelling bee at school. However, when it comes to your child's development, remember that more important than the positive end result is the road your child travelled to get there. Surely, working for that A took a commitment on your child's part. Give your child a confidence boost by letting him or her know that you're proud of his or her efforts and willingness to stick with the studying. 

It is just as important to praise improvements; if your child brought his or her report card up from straight-Cs to all Bs and one C, congratulate this progress. Avoid insincere or hollow compliments. "Good job, but let's keep shooting for those As," isn't as likely to help your child feel confident and to continue taking steps in the right direction as a comment that focuses on his or her accomplishment, such as, "You've worked hard, and it's paid off. I'm proud of you for making such a big improvement."
