RAISING FEARLESS TOTS: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
Fearlessness is a definitive trait that ought to be taught to kids during their tender years. It’s up to parents to cultivate habits in their kids to make them fearless and take on challenges. Nurturing fearlessness can be tricky if not done the right way. In this article, Happy Cubs lists some of those ways to train your little ones to be fearless in life:
- Lead the way: Your little ones love to mimic what you do and pick up habits that are a part of your routine. By being fearless yourself, you’ll motivate your kids to fear nothing in life.
- Filling them in: It’s important to show confidence in your kids and this is best done by filling them in on the importance of rules at home and in life. By considering them mature, you’ll indirectly kindle confidence in them.
- Importance of opinions: Disagreements with kids are a part of parenting. These disagreements tend to define the relation between you and your kids. Instead of contradicting them, it’s important to make them reflect on their opinions and teach them how to use them in their favour.
- Encouragement: Every child is special and this is something which parents need to understand. Parenting isn’t just about identifying what your kids are good at but what you do to make them derive confidence out of their positives. This confidence helps them face anything in life.
- Let them be, time to time: Nagging and being a voice in your kids’ heads only makes matters worse. Give them their space and shower importance on their ability to contemplate. This, in turn, makes them independent and thus fearless.
- Helping them identify their fears: The best way to kill fear is to challenge it. Helping your kids with identifying their fears and training them to think about countermeasures indirectly leads to fearlessness.
- Reminding them of past victories: When faced with a situation, it’s important to remind them of their little victories in the past. When they’re reminded of these past victories, it spurs them on to take on any new challenges with fearlessness.
