How to properly raise an optimistic child?
Help to achieve success
Children form an optimistic outlook on life andIncrease self-esteem when they manage to do something well. In order for everything to work out well, you need parental support. In addition, when the child has done something well, parents need to notice it out loud and praise the child. The main thing is not to overdo it.
Explain why the child has succeeded
One praise will be few. For the praise must necessarily follow a child-friendly explanation of the reason why he did something well. That is, you always need to explain the child the components of his success, so that he understands that luck is not always given simply.
Do not praise a child
Do not praise the child for absolutely everything he does, otherwise in the future he will not be able to solve problems independently, which leads to confusion, anxiety, uncertainty and depression.
Provide support for failures
When children do not succeed, they begin to feel insecure. It is at such moments that it is especially important that parents are close and able to encourage and hold.
Teach your child to notice only good things
It should be explained that in any situation you can always find something positive. It is possible as a game to offer a child to find something good in the negative.
Do not talk about the child badly in his presence
You can perfectly adjust his behavior,But never call him a fool, lack of talent, harm, and other words. Children believe their parents, so soon with such words, he really becomes a fool, harm and mediocrity.
