  1. Not only kids needs to be confident likewise adult. If a parent isn’t confident there is no way they can teach their child to be confidence. You cant give what you dont have. So it must start with the parents.

  2. I have seen parents who yelled at their kids in public this isnt good. Yes you can correct your child in public but there is a way to go about it. When you yell at them in public you punch their self esteem and gradually their self esteem starts to deflate still it becomes flat.

  3. Life is tough, confidence is needed for survival in this agressive world. It is up to parents to prepare their child for what lies ahead.
