teaching your child logic and self confidence

Are you……………..

looking for simple ways to help your child develop into a confident young adult?

or are you looking for methods on how to teach children logical thinking. Did you know Praise alone will not achieve this. Think about how we as adults feel when we actually accomplish or achieve something and how it makes us feel.

If a person was told everyday how brilliant they were at something. Would they believe that statement was true? . No However If someone did something every day and gradually started believing for themselves they were becoming good at doing something from “struggle and achieving” They would then start to believe that statement was true. No amount of being told alone would develop self confidence. It is only by participating and learning from your own mistakes will you develop self confidence. Self belief is crucial to become self confident.

Children need opportunities to be able to develop self confidence, no amount of praise alone will achieve this.

It really is no different to an adult. Imagine setting a goal to run a marathon, imagine how you would feel when you complete that marathon. Imagine trying to solve a problem, imagine how it makes us feel when we find a solution to that problem. The best thing you can do to help a child is provide the opportunities to discover how to solve problems. Let them see the consequences of their own actions and learn from them. This will develop true self confidence. This is the philosophy behind Teaching with Love & Logic: Taking Control of the Classroom

Making children accountable for their own actions, but at the same time showing you as a parent how to handle those consequences in a positive way. It is a very positive way to prepare children for adulthood.
