Did you know that teaching your kids how to make chocolate chip cookies can build self-confidence?
That’s right. Any time your kids have an opportunity to learn something new and to create something exciting it builds self-confidence.
And what can be more exciting for a young child than chocolate chip cookies!
Many people don’t realize that self-confidence is a skill that can be developed.
One of the best ways to help kids build self-confidence is to give them opportunities to learn something new – to challenge themselves and stretch outside of their comfort zone.
Succeeding at something new leads to a sense of accomplishment which, in turn, builds self-confidence.
Give your children as many opportunities to be successful as you can find. Start small with things like putting together a simple model, making a tie-dye t-shirt, and yes, making chocolate chip cookies.
Even household activities such as raking the front lawn, folding their own laundry, and setting the table can build confidence.
Remember that success begets success. And it just might be yummy too.
