How can you develop self-confidence in a child and what does it depend on - does it depend on their individual characteristics or can this trait be developed? In this regard, child psychotherapists advise parents to ask themselves more often: "Does my child feel safe, loved, and understood?" If so, they say, you are on the right track.

The RSVP Live online resource talked to a well-known expert in this field, Kate Silverton, about proper parenting. Here are some useful tips from her on raising a happy child

You are the best toy for a child

Parents should not focus on buying educational toys. It's much better when they follow their instincts in raising children. Science simply confirms what nature knows: our children do not need to "do" in these early years. They need to "be" with us, as we are their guides in this world.

Parents have more power than they realize. And the best toy for a child at an early age is your face. Every look, every smile, every interaction is stored in their "memory bank" and creates important connections that help them later in life.

Help your child regulate their emotions

Emotional self-regulation is the most important skill that all children need to learn. At an early age (under 3 years), it is much more important than any other achievement.

It sounds simple, but teaching a child to manage their basic emotions is one of the best investments in their development.

We can do this by welcoming all children's emotions, including their anger. After all, this is the only way they are trying to communicate their feelings and thoughts.

At this stage, a child's brain is still immature, so we cannot judge their behavior by the standards of an adult. In this case, you should abandon the categories of "obedient" or "naughty" and consider the child's "tantrums" as a sign of emotional overstrain and as a "request for help" to return him or her to a normal state.

Play with children as often as possible

Prominent neuroscientist Jack Panksepp said: "The best thing you can do to 'educate' your child is to get down on the floor and play with them."

In fact, your enthusiasm and attention is all she needs to develop. What could be better than if mom or dad is delighted with what he or she is doing. If you like it, then your child will feel confident and comfortable.
