Your child has now entered the outside world where he has to face new tasks and challenges. Confidence is key to learn new activities. You need to understand his needs and then help him move forward towards that path.
What you can do
You can be his perfect companion and also help groom the kid into a confident adult. You have to be there while he’s studying, playing or eating. Be his partner so that you can guide him and motivate him at every step. Reports suggest that the reason for lack of confidence in children is due to negligent behaviour of parents.
Make sure you play different roles of a friend, guide and a supervisor. Take part in activities like dancing and singing to help him get rid of his shy nature and develop the confidence required to face a large audience. Remember that your child would seek your help the most during his growing phase. Do not disappoint him and be his guiding light.
