18 Consejos Para Desarrollar La Confianza De Un Niño/a
noviembre 19, 2020
This post is based on an article from acclaimed psychologist Carl Pickhardt.
As said many times before, youth sports are about developing good players and good, healthy people, and we know at times this might sound like a cliché or a vague phrase, so we want to be specific about how we can actually contribute to that purpose.
Carl Pickhardt, psicólogo y autor de 15 libros sobre paternidad, indica en su artículo’18 Things to Raise a More Confident Child‘ that ‘a kid who lacks confidence will be 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’
So Dr. Pickhardt offers this 18 tips:
Appreciate effort no matter if they win or lose:
Encourage practice to build competence
Let them figure out problems by themselves
Let them act their age
Give them new challenges
Avoid creating shortcuts or making exceptions for your child
Never criticize their performance
Treat mistakes as building blocks for learning
Open the door to new experiences
Teach them what you know how to do
Don’t tell them when you’re worried about them
Praise them when they deal with adversity
Offer your help and support, but not too much of it
Applaud their courage to try something new
Celebrate the excitement of learning
Don’t allow them to escape reality by spending all their time on the internet
Be authoritative, but not too forceful or strict
In the webinar below, Dr. Kevin Currie-Knight interviews Dr. Pickhardt and deepens on the importance of self esteem and many of the concepts and tips presented above.
