Raising A Brave and Self-Confident Child

"Raising A Brave and Self-Confident Child: A Complete Guide" by Linda May

As parents, we all want to raise confident children who thrive. Yet for decades, parenting experts had it all wrong as they believed that confidence and self-esteem could be boosted by praising children with words such as ‘You’re smart’ and ‘Well done’. Extensive research done in the last decade shows that this can be detrimental and even damaging to children.

"Raising A Brave and Self-Confident Child" is a complete guide to your adventure called "parenting".
