As parents and caregivers, we all want to raise confident kids who are ready to take on the world. Children who trust in their own capabilities better navigate challenges, take risks, engage in learning, handle conflict, and have healthy relationships.
Cultivating confidence starts in the classroom and continues with engaging extracurricular activities. Now that it’s almost time for the kids to go back to school, we’ve enlisted Ridgefield Academy to help us share some of the ways you can instill confidence in your child, and we hope you find it helpful and inspiring! And you can learn more at their interactive admissions events.
1. Ensure a Child-Focused Approach
Students learn best when their schools and teachers can adapt to their individual needs, so it’s extra important that they are not only the focus of lessons, but are the driving force behind how teachers present information.
