Want to know the real secret to raising a confident child? The real secret is to debunk this notion we have, of perfection.
If you can show your kids that just being themselves is completely fine, that mistakes are just normal parts of being human, that messing up is just part of the process, and that they don’t have to strive to get your appreciation, that your validation doesn’t only come with them meeting certain goals or reaching certain achievements or fulfilling certain ideals. If they can see that the process of fallibility, of normality, of imperfection, of just being themselves, is the whole point of the journey. Then they will be confident.
You see, our children are born confident. As babies, they didn’t pretend not to be hungry so as not to inconvenience others. So when did they learn that they need to act a certain way in order to gain approval? It’s we who imposed these insane standards, these ideas of perfection onto them, then they begin to stumble, then they begin to divorce from their true self, then they begin to doubt.
So the secret to confidence is the acceptance, the embrace, and the celebration of imperfections, of ordinariness, of being just who it is they are. When you honor them for this truth then they will naturally be confident about themselves. It is in the celebration of imperfection that confidence lies just beneath.
