The importance of fostering healthy self-confidence in your Cypress preschooler

Posted on 06-30-2014

A healthy sense of self-confidence is key to many of life’s successes, from building good relationships to the courage to pursue a dream.

This self-confidence is developed from an early age and it is especially important to encourage this growth in preschoolers, as they are at an age where they start to develop independence. Here is some useful advice to help stimulate this growth:

  • Be a role model: You are your child’s most important teacher and he will pick up healthy behaviors quickly by copying you. Showing your child that it is important to love yourself, try new things, and deal with setbacks in a positive way will give your child a strong foundation.
     
  • Show interest: If your child has a particular interest, get involved and let them take the lead. Going to baseball matches, painting a picture or talking about homework will show your child that what they like to do is important.
     
  • Give praise: When your child tries something new, let him know how proud you are – regardless of success. If he has worked hard to do well in a certain activity, make sure that this effort is rewarded. At this age, the development of good self-esteem will help your child discover their unique interests. One way to encourage your child’s curiosity, build self-esteem and reward effort is a trip to the Children’s Museum of Houston. This museum has fun, interactive exhibits and children of other ages to play with.
     
  • Provide opportunities to act responsibly: Age-appropriate family chores are a great way for your child to help out around the home while learning about responsibility. Build a fun chart together to track each chore and allow your child to check them off when complete. Praise your child for accomplishing each task and let him know how important his contribution is.
     
  • Talk your child through challenging situations: If your child makes a mistake or a bad choice, use it as a learning situation. Talk to him about what happened and how to do things differently the next time. This will teach your child how to approach a similar situation successfully in the future.
