Encourage your kids

Build up your child’s confidence by encouraging him or her to step out of their comfort zone to try new things, and by noticing and praising their efforts.

Encourage your children to be the best that they can be. Whether it is in school work, sporting activity or any other endeavour, the important thing is that they challenge themselves.

  • Don’t compare your children to each other, to their friends or to yourself
  • Make sure you notice and praise their efforts
  • Let your children know you love them, no matter what
