"The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others" ~Sonya Friedman
School, regarded as our second abode, plays a magnificent role in shaping the values and attributes of children. One of the areas that require a lot of emphasis is building confidence among young children. A child with a low level of confidence develops a low self-esteem, has problem growing up in life and also has trouble interacting with others. Confidence building is especially true during the formative years of a child's life when he/she get enrolled in the primary schools. A good training institute for Primary teachers can help aspiring teachers learn the best practices of incorporating different techniques of building confidence in children who are studying in the primary schools in India.

Building Confidence
The primary teachers' attitude plays a key role in instilling confidence among young learners. Therefore, the first criterion is that before a teacher takes up a teaching job in India, he should learn to be confident himself. And this partly comes through grooming. By seeing their teachers' confident, young children can become confident themselves.

Games - A confidence Booster
Building confidence through games is one of the best practices in several schools. Through role playing for example, primary teachers can prepare the young learners to develop confidence so as to cope with uncomfortable situations in life. Primary teachers should know the art of teaching the child to be assertive rather than passive in a problem situation, so that he can become confident.

Admiring kids
Admiring young children in a proper manner is a great way of helping them build confidence. But teachers should admire them only when there is a need. Admiring students just for the heck of it leads to more tensions among kids and does not build their confidence. Children should be admired on specific activities they perform or special task they accomplish. Positive criticism is important in the process of confidence building. Primary teachers who take up teaching jobs in India should learn to criticize kids whenever there is a need or a situation.

The Right Grooming - American TESOL Institute
Building confidence among young learners is part of teaching jobs in India. The process takes considerable time and effort from the part of the teacher as well as the young learner. However, there are very few good primary schools in India or for that matter training institutes for primary teachers that equip teachers to develop confidence among young learners so that they grow up to be smart dynamic individuals. However, primary teachers groomed from the American TESOL Institute (ATI) perfectly understand the art of confidence building among young learners. ATI offers courses to primary teachers that equip them to take up teaching jobs in India and that helps them in building self-confidence among young learners.
