Confidence is one of the most important aspects of life in order to have a successful, happy and fulfilling life in future. It is not something a child is born with, but a skill that is learnt over the years with practice. Carl Pickhardt, a psychologist and author of 15 parenting books, says that a kid who lacks confidence is reluctant to try new or challenging things because they’re scared of failing or disappointing others. This can end up holding them back later in life and prevent them from having a successful career. That’s why, it’s really important to boost your child’s confidence from an early age.
