How can we ensure that our children have confidence?

 

6 tips in ensuring our children have confidence… 

  1. Give praise where praise is due. 
  2. Lots of positive talking with a growth mindset
  3. Put them in different situations where they have to speak to lots of different people of all ages. 
  4. Let them make their own decisions – guiding them as necessary. 
  5. Nurture their special interests. 
  6. And of course send them to Little Voices so that we can get to know them and nurture their special talents

Why is confidence so important?

What does confidence even mean?

Confidence is the feeling or belief in an ability to do something, according to google!

Children have so much to acquire and achieve. There’s so much for them to handle from such an early age especially once the school journey begins. There are many transitions along the way too; high school, friends, getting a part time job, handling the wider world and social media.

I once heard that a confident child is a happy one, and I couldn’t agree more. I don’t necessarily mean the children who are born to be on the stage, but the children who have the confidence to know their own mind, and be able to go through life with self belief. The children who have the confidence to speak to other children and adults, create friendships, not be too nervous about performing in the school nativity, who are happy to make friends on holiday, who are happy to join new clubs out of school, who are happy to put their hands up in class. And as these children get older, children who have the confidence when they join high school to just go for it, the children who know how to handle themselves in job interviews, or interviews for college and university. 

Some children are just born to be confident, others have a little more trouble. Some children need that little bit of extra help to believe in themselves to be able to do something. And that’s where lessons like Little Voices can help. Specifically tailored to building confidence – helping conversational and social skills whilst getting all the important performing arts techniques, examination experience and brand new friends – all these things not only help children who want a life on the stage, but parents who want well rounded children. 

So confidence is important for a child’s general happiness and to help create a well rounded individual. They don’t need to be the next big star, but confidence will certainly help them conquer lots of things that little people need to conquer!
