You know, at the end of the day, all we really want to know is how do we raise confident, self-reliant kids. Well, guess what – if you want to have a confident kid, you need to be a confident parent. The more confident you are in the choices you make and the things you ask them to do and the decisions you make every day, the more confident they will be that they are the right decisions. The more you worry, the more you stress, the more you apologize, the more they wonder whether they can trust your decisions or whether they can trust their own. It’s okay if you work; it’s okay if you don’t work; it’s okay if you’re spending a lot of time one day and not a lot of time the next day – do it with confidence and almost anything – within reason – your child can get used to.
