Big Picture Perspective

I don’t know which of the qualities in this series on how to make your child a hero or well-respected kid, but I know this last one is not one easily gained.

Some qualities cannot be taught. They have to be learned. They need time to develop and grow.

Quality # 6 – Confidence.

Daddy says confidence comes from experience. When you do something over and over again and the results come, you get confidence that what you do works.

That makes sense.

I like to play. Jump. Dance. Sing. Swim. Read. Watch. Catch. Throw. …

I like to do lots of things. And daddy says there is nothing wrong with that.

But when I pick one of those and do it more often than the others I’ll get better at it. And then when I get better at it, I’ll do it even more. And get even better at it. And and … and my confidence will grow.

So that when someone asks me to do what I am really good at, I can jump right up and do it. Because I have confidence based on my experience.

That makes sense.

People, friends and strangers will depend on others who have confidence when the time comes that need someone who has the skill they are looking for.

I just need to figure out what I want to more and  more of.

I think I know – Skipping! I love to skip.

Does anybody need a skipper?

How do you teach your children to have confidence?
