I am so delighted to announce that we are publishing a new pack of cards to help children develop confidence.
Confidence affects all areas of our lives from work to relationships to health. If we help children be confident we are giving them an important tool and a great start in life.
The cards have been written by Becky Goddard Hill (author of Healthy Friendships) and will help children develop self-esteem and self-belief as well as develop strategies for keeping their confidence high.
Becky explained to me earlier that confidence is important for many reasons. Confidence can help children approach life positively. Confidence can help them takes risks (which are such an important part of growing up) and reach their potential, it also helps them assert themselves.
Real confidence helps children’s emotional health enormously. It helps them stay robust when life challenges come along such as bereavement or parental separation. It helps them deal with transitions to new schools and evolving and tricky friendships.
These cards aim to give focus to these important issues and really help children begin to talk about how confident they feel, and why. The cards will also work to affirm strengths and help children value themselves. Finally the cards will offer conversations around ways to develop confidence.
The cards can be used at home and at school and are essentially in four colour coded categories
- Defining Confidence
- Current Confidence
- Affirming Confidence
- Increasing Confidence
