Bart Rossi, a political psychologist, spoke about back to school confidence boost tips. Topics included bullying, danger, and self-esteem.
Before you try back to school confidence boost tips, Dr. Rossi suggests that parents need to begin with who their child is, rather than what they want them to achieve. The way in which to boost a child’s confidence has much do with whether they are extroverted, introverted, anger, sad, or creative.
When speaking to kids, the descriptors are important. For example, we should talk to kids about danger, and provide examples. But parents, while making them aware of what dangers there are out there, should do so without leaving them obsessing about it.
Kids learn when they listen. So this is a big step to attempt, since getting kids to sit and listen, and absorb is not an easy task during their high-energy years. But it’s worth the effort.
