Building Child Confidence in Children with Learning Problems
Most parents of children with learning disabilities who struggle with confidence issues don’t focus on the right solution – STRENGTHS! Without understanding a child’s true innate gifts, parents remain in a constant cycle of trying to fix their child’s weaknesses, which leads to more stress and frustration for both the parent and the child; but when parents begin to focus on what their child CAN do, they begin to see improved confidence, improved effort, and an improved overall motivation to learn. Focusing on their strengths is what will change the narrative! In this talk, I teach parents 3 things they should know about how to improve their child’s self confidence, so that their child is happier and more motivated to learn. Parents leave with evidence-based tools they can apply, immediately.
