Re: How to teach a child self confidence and self esteem?

Teach her that there will always be A-holes in life and how to deal with them. Help her learn to stand her ground but when to step aside and let fate take over. Teach her to debate, not argue and that being the bigger person in an argument goes a long way. Help her learn about courage. Being afraid and doing nothing makes you a coward. Being afraid and doing something anyway is courageous.
