Introduction


Living in this competitive world, it would be little hard for each children to identify their potential and build up their own unique way of thinking positive. But if the environment surrounding him is better to face challenges the child can go beyond his dreams. Self confidence plays a vital role in the success of each student. Here comes the role of parents in building self confidence in their child and make them discover their talents. Each child born on earth goes through different stages of development where he finds more challenges which he hasn't come upon. All human being born on earth is filled with a handful of talents. But the negative thoughts charged upon him/her make a child to hide behind the screen. The secret behind all successful personalities lies only on one factor ie these people have inbuilt self confidence or self esteem.

Being a school teacher each day I deal with hundreds of children. From this experience I found why students go backward in their daily activities. It's the lack of 'Self Confidence'. Building high power self confidence is the most vital step for each child to grow up to the ladder of success. I do wonder why schools are not much giving importance for psychological development of the children. Even parents are not too much concerned about this matter. But if both home and school atmosphere is well built, the children can go beyond their dreams. Through this article I am trying to bring some valuable points that would bring wonder in the life of each child.

6 steps to build Self Confidence


1. Say to your child-I am your friend
2. Guide the children to enjoy fruitful life
3. The power of self discovery
4. Make the child to be acquainted with the art of conversation
5. Build up the thought- Be Positive
6. Create a burning desire in the child to discover the world


Say to your child-'I am your friend'


In the busy world, many parents find hard to spend time to share with their children. When the child grows up he finds difficult to adjust with the non friendly atmosphere in the home itself. Most of the children are brought up as broiler chickens where the thoughts of the children are given less importance. If the child feels a homely atmosphere to share his thoughts with his parents, this would build in him a large amount of self confidence which would be the stepping stone for his further development. As a child spends 60-70% of his child life in the home itself, it's the need of the hour to build a positive atmosphere which would endeavor the students to maximize his self confidence. So be a good friend to your child.

Guide the children to enjoy fruitful life


The parents should act as a shield and help the child to enjoy his life in a joyful manner. Early in the morning, the parents can guide the child to do his home work, ask him about school assignments etc. This will make the child to have a thick bond with the parents while he feels that he is cared. This will bring self confidence in the child.

The power of self discovery


This would be the most essential part of each child. Here the role of each parent is important. Discovery of the self leads to self confidence and self discipline. Along with physical part, psychological part plays key role in making a child to discover his/her possibilities. Here what the parents have to do is to help the child to realize his potential. Powerful words can bring psychological changes in a child.

Make the child to be acquainted with the art of conversation


Most of the children fail because of the lack of having skills in 'the art of conversation'. To some extend conversation is an art. Mingling with other will bring self confidence and adding more to it the child will be courageous enough to expand his skills. The basic of the art of conversation have to be bud up from the family itself. Most of the children fail in making success in conversation because of the lack of well built atmosphere in the home. The character and behavior of the parents will influence the child to some extend.

Build up the thought- Think Positive


Have you ever though why human beings rule the world even he is just a silly creature compared to other huge animals. We can say it would be his unique power to think rationally. Added to this is the positive attitude of human being towards life. He likes to take challenges. His unique quality of 'try till succeed' have made human being the leader of the world. Let us take the though-'Be Postive'. Pouring positive energy in to the minds each and every second will bring revolutionary changes in one individual.

Create a burning desire in the child to discover the world


What is burning desire? Burning desire means, the inner intention to strive new heights. Burning desire to achieve more will surely build self confidence in one person. With a dedicated mind parents can impose external motivation on the child to focus on his ambition. Make your child to plan his life accordingly with short term and long term goal. Pump up positive energy in your child, congratulate him for his success, present the child with a gift for his achievement, pat him for his social activities. Build up a burning desire in your child's mind, and I am sure he will soon make a space for him.

Best Wishes for both Parent and Child.
