Cultivating Confidence in Kids
Teacher Workshop Proposal
Self-confidence may come natural to a few, but for most it’s a skill that needs to be developed. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce a perspective, language and tools designed to help kids develop confidence and inner strength to last a lifetime. As an added bonus, confident kids (and adults) are far less likely to fall prey to bullies. A confident kid (or adult) will not let the aggressive behavior of another affect how they feel about their own self-worth.
This presentation focuses on language and techniques teachers can use with kids to help them develop self-confidence they can draw upon for a lifetime. Teachers find this approach helpful in their own lives and easy to share with kids. These are skills that last a lifetime and everyone will benefit from using in all future relationships with peers, bosses, coworkers, partners and more.
After attending this presentation, teachers will feel well equipped to help students feel better about themselves and their abilities. They’ll have talking points and activities to use in the classroom that will help kids build a strong foundation that fosters increased self-confidence that does not depend on the behavior of others.
