Re: Raising confident children

I think the best thing to do is work on your own confidence. When you are comfortable and confident in yourselves, I think that rubs off some. I also praise my kids efforts (not their results), and try to make sure my compliments don't depend on perfect products or appearances. So instead of saying 'What a pretty house you drew', I say "I can see you worked hard on your picture, can you tell me about it?"
