Why is building confidence in children important?
Building confidence at an early age has the ability to make children feel better about themselves. Think about yourself – when you lack confidence how do you feel? You can be depressed, lazy, and settle for mediocre. Now, think about how you feel when your confidence is high – how do you feel? You probably feel motivated and fearless – even eager to ask for help if you need it because you’re excited about your life and want to continue advancing forward.
Confidence goes hand in hand with making good decisions. When a child has confidence they are able to maintain a growth mindset, finding solutions rather than seeing the problems. They are also more likely to take responsibility for their actions – the good and the bad.
That’s why Characters of Character NFP, Inc. developed the Mindfulness Affirmation Character Building Kit featuring Self-Esteem Elephant. Our Mindfulness Kit is filled with activities, positive visual reminders, and allows children an outlet to express their true feelings and emotions while developing confidence. Each kit bought will be donated to the Confidence Building Boxes to the Hendersonville Library. The link is here
