    Hi Aparna,

    Reading your blog made me realised that I am guilty of feeding my five year old now going to be six. But then this is the only thing I am guilty about because If I don’t feed him he will not have his veggies or pulses. Other than this I let him choose his own clothes both at home and when we are going out! Thanks for an insightful article. Do visit mine and leave your feedback! Would love to hear from you! Thanks and regards

    Confidence is also connected to a sense of self-worth and a sense of security. Giving bite size responsibilities is the key. If we hand over responsibilities that are bigger to resolve, manage this could hamper and effect in confidence depletion. Allowing the child to pick his challenge (folding clothes even) usually helps. He will be able to plan how he wants to approach the problem statement, and implement his plan. Observing and talking about how he all by himself planned his own activity and implemented it also adds to his self-esteem. He will automatically learn to take up new and larger challenges.
    Second is Security. By providing resources and assistance to help him complete his work and other small challenges through chores will add to his confidence. That you are there for when and if the things go wrong. This does not mean you do his work for him. It means you have conversations with him continuously to make him reflect and realize what he thinks, does, how you helped, with what…and end result.

    Thank you Aparna, loved the article!
