When a child is still young, it's not uncommon for a parent to gaze into their little one's eyes and wonder what will become of this being they love so much. Will she be the next winner of the Nobel Prize? Start his own rock band? Travel the world with only a backpack full of belongings? Parents want to feel like they know and understand their child deeply, and taking a step back and observing may be the key to gaining insights. To recognize early signs your kid will be confident, think about their choices and actions through a special lens. Because chances are they have been flexing their confidence muscles all along.
When it comes to confident kids, there is plenty of advice on what parents can do to raise one. However, some children have been developing their confidence since birth, whether their parents have recognized the signs or not. Some parents may have unknowingly fostered a sense of confidence in their children by creating a home environment and parenting style that allowed their little one to flourish — and some kiddos are just born with the extra moxie to grab the world by the horns. No matter how they arrived at this point, these signs of budding confidence prove that your child will be able to hold their own throughout life.
