You know that your child is a truely talented one. You are happy with him when he performs well in front of you. This exudes a sense of pride in you. But whenver your child ventures out he becomes shy, he/she cannot perform well in front of his friends or he just wants to stay with instead of his peer group.

How to improve confidence in your child?
Building the confidence level of your child is part of good upbringing. Who would not like to see their child to be the best? But this desire of making a super-child out of our kids builds up trememndous pressure on them and they simply succumb to lack of confidence. To see your child perform well in every field, be it academics, music or sports you have to give him the gift of confidence first. We are saying confidence is a gift because parents can do the best in building confidence in children. And parents only can build confidence during the formative years of a child, ie. from beginning to three four years. Here is how parents can improve confidence of their child.

I have seen kids who perform really brilliant in exams but can't face the reacher in the class rooms. It happens on the other way too. Students who appear to be very smart in the class performs really poor in the exams. Developing confidence in children is one of the biggest challenges for many parents. Sending to special courses may be helpful a bit but confidence building has to start from the home and should continue in the school. In most cases, the children who shows lack of confidence will have some stories to tell. Many times, the reason is hwo they are treated by their parents. If you always talk bad about your children or keep saying they are good for nothing, don't expect your children to grow with confidence.
