I recently did a virtual parent-teacher session with my preschooler’s teacher and amongst the feedback she gave me on my daughter’s learning and development in school, the one that hit me most was that she’s “not confident”.
Despite what I know are good intentions, honestly I was taken aback because I thought she was. She seemed so… can’t help but think as if being confident is all we need in order to do well in life and she’s not. 😨
On one hand, I felt like I was not doing enough as a mom. On the other, it’s not like I can just tell her to BE confident because she’s only 4 and just starting to explore her world, trying new things and slowly discovering who she is as a person. I mean, I was figuring myself out just awhile ago and I’m 10x older! 😅
“Confidence comes from knowing who you are and what you stand for.”
Feedback is good to help keep pace. But worry is the last thing I need to do. ❤
