How Do I Instill Boldness And Confidence In My Daughters? by Hemanwel(m): 10:04am On Apr 28
Good morning dear nairalanders!

I have two daughters: one will be 3 years old later in the year and the other will be 1 next month. I noticed that my first daughter is too timid. She gets easily frightened by her peers. She is quiet. She will allow just anybody to carry her - even those whom she is older and bigger than - without any resistance.

I really don't like these attributes about her. I want her to have the boldness to resist some of these things. I want her to be aggressive. I want her to grow up having confidence in doing things her way.
I also wish to instill that in the second child. Thank you!

Leave her alone the way God made her. She's the quiet type. Don't make her aggressive. She will not be timid through out her life time, she will adjust as she grows.
Concentrate on giving them the best in life.
See them as important as a male child!
God bless them and make you proud of them someday

Just 3?! Ogbeni you better don't stress your heart yet. By the time, she's 15 her boldness and confidence will almost kill you. If kids in 2021 are now very conversant with and want to live their lives based on Naira Marley's lyrics, imagine what the situation would be in 2032. E don spoil. grin grin

Hmmm!!!!! Oga! Please give them food to eat and let them be....Besides How do you plan to define confident to a 3 year old and a one year old?
The only thing I can tell you is that you should wait till the first turned 7... Then you can register them at your nearest karate class or taekwondo lessons.. for a year.. that will boast their confidence..

Build their self confidence and self esteem at an appropriate age.

Also work to balance it so they do not become entitled.

I think that there is a way God created all children. Our job is to prune them but in the same direction that they are naturally. because there is a purpose God brought her to this world and that trait might just be what she needs to fit into the role God has for her.

Calm down, at three years, if she starts exhibiting those qualities you mention, you will be worried for her age

Start working on her at home

Seay her down and tell her how you feel about her quiet attitude

Children loves counseling

With time she will pick up

Cultivate whatever trait you want to see in them. You're their role model for now.
Encourage your wife to do same.

You'll observe untamed Confidence, Smartness, Boldness at public speaking, uttering 5000 sentences in 2 minutes and many more, that you would wish you never brought them in, in the 1st place. grin

Please do not ruin the lives of these kids, they still small & girls too. Instead of u to be happy for having quiet kids, u want troublesome ones?

You mean like homosexuals and transgendered? God put that trait in them?

I'm not sure we know what's happening in western culture today.

I agree with you totally my brother.. Just 3 and 1 and he is talking about confidence...in the 80s' those age range were usually wearing white napkins/ nappies running around the house barefooted... not nowadays that we parcel them to school @ 6months..

I think we all should be careful of what we wished for... by the time he forced confidence in those kids, and they gained 101% confident and starts slapping him at old age, he will longed for the docile kids he used to have those days but it will be like a dream..

At 3, I think she's still too young for you to begin to worry. Wait until shes 5 then see if she improves.

Better still, take them to funfare parks from time to time to enable her mingle and play with children from different works of life and training. She'll Sharpen up fast.

Always Locking children indoors affects their social and active life. Let them socialize with other children.
