It only takes a little to BE BIG.

Children are so impressionable at a young age. When they have successes, they are naturally motivated to attempt new challenges. Opportunities to grow in self-confidence are important for the young child just learning about his or her own potential. Most children need encouragement to try again after making mistakes or having unsuccessful experiences. Welcoming life's new experiences with enthusiasm comes from confidence learned early in life. Offer encouragement and watch them go!
