Instruction how to grow confident in the child itself
Do not interfere with the undertakings of the child and respect his desire to always learn new things. Encourage any initiative that inspires confidence in their own abilities. If your baby develops a certain skill, and always be ready to help him, but do not say that you know how to do. Just are close, suggest if necessary. Observe the behavior of the child, his aspirations and desires. Do not try to limit it to the game, do not insist on the fact that it seems to you more useful to him. Give your child the opportunity to identify himself, what he wants to do (eg, music, sports, or drawing).
I sincerely rejoice to anyone, even if you think your baby insignificant achievement. After all, the child is in any case - a major breakthrough.
Talk with your baby on a variety of topics: good and evil, friendship, mutual aid, the attitude to adults, that is adult life, and how it differs from childhood. Pay attention to sex education. Try to build their explanation in accessible, plain language to the child, do not prevaricate, always be honest. Children are very keenly feel the falseness.
Listen carefully to his opinion on every issue, respect him. If a child is wrong, gently, without ridicule and reproach, try to convince him. All this should take place in an atmosphere of goodwill.
Engaged in the development of their child. Take time out to read together and discuss a good book, watch a good cartoon or fairy tale.
Never compare your baby to other children in their presence, do not become a mediator in the relationship between the children, let them learn to communicate with each other. You just only in the event of any problems can slightly adjust their attitude.
Pay attention to your family relations with her husband. Keep in mind that children are very keenly experienced any problems in communicating their parents. So try to show respect to each other, and then the child will feel confident.
Consider your child's individual characteristics. If by nature he is endowed with not too sociable, do not scold him for it, and help deal with this problem by conducting classes, eliminating communication barriers.
Do not isolate the child from the other children, do not keep it under the "glass cap" protecting against all possible and impossible challenges. The kid must attend kindergarten, various clubs and classes.
Treat it as an individual, in which case he would be assured. And remember, that happiness - it is too broad a concept to write the recipe on one sheet of paper. The main thing - love your child, respect their rights, take care of him.
