Confident kids rule their future

Do you admire confident people? Most of us are attracted to confident men and women. They believe in themselves, strive for their goals and make a difference in the world.

So how do we encourage our children to believe in themselves, to have the strength to determine their own path?

The best way, as with most things, is to lead by example. To demonstrate these behaviors to our children by what we say and do. Not always easy. As parents, we need to work and our kids go to school. The evenings are packed out with meal times, homework and play time.

How can we develop self confidence in kids?

We believe that storytelling is one of the most effective ways to demonstrate new attitudes and behaviors. Even complicated concepts such as 'Listening Skills' can be simplified in a story.

The power of storytelling:

Kids quickly learn to love reading. So if they're going to read, then why not have them read books which teach valuable life skills?

Teaching self confidence in kids

To learn a new attitude or behavior we need to see it in action. We then need to witness the benefits and rewards of the new behavior. We can then act out that behavior in real life. That is the approach we have taken in 'Magic Mouse'.
