On the other hand a person with full of self confidence has always achieved his goal in life. This sense of self confidence has to be grown in the child since the beginning when they are young. Always give the encouragement to your child and make them feel that they are capable of doing many good things in life which will make him and his parents feel proud of him. Treat your young ones with dignity which will ensure they respect you back and enhance the strong relation between you and him.
