“Daughters need confidence, I think. No, it is more approval, that is what gives them confidence. My dad would do anything for me but he wasn’t able to encourage me enough, to tell me that I could achieve anything I wanted. I guess a lot of men from that generation were not really good at giving praise. Praise gives you confidence to go on and achieve even more than you already have.” – Susie Annus, wife of Kim Beazley, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia
- Encourage your child to dream big and then work hard to achieve those dreams
- Don’t set limits for what you believe your child can achieve. Dream big with them
- Support your child in all they do. Let them know that you believe in them!
