Is your little one shy when he has to appear in front of many people? No need to worry, Moms. There are ways to train his self-confidence to make him dare to appear in public.

Your parenting style is very much related to the formation of your little one’s confidence. This is why your role is very important in growing his self-confidence. Daily habits at home, primarily related to linguistic intelligence may nourish your little one’s self-confidence.

Now, let’s talk more about linguistic intelligence and its role in nourishing your little one’s self-confidence.

Howard Gardner, a psychology expert from Harvard University, proposed a different definition of intelligence to make a broader measure of one’s potential. He divided intelligence into eight aspects called as multiple intelligences. According to him, each individual possesses the eight intelligences in varying degrees.

Linguistic intelligence is one of it. Others are logical-mathematical intelligence, spatial intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, musical intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence and naturalist intelligence.

Linguistic intelligence involves language ability, how to use words effectively. A child with a prominent linguistic intelligence loves to listen and tell stories, as well as role playing. Even though your little one may stand out in linguistic intelligence, it should be kept stimulated to reach his or her maximum potential.

To make your little one dare to appear in public, you should consistently sharpen his linguistic intelligence by stimulating him with telling stories, playing letters, stringing stories, and listening to music. You are not only teaching him new words by telling stories, but also supporting his future academic achievement.

Give your little one a chance to express his opinions, feelings, and ideas. This may also sharpen his linguistic intelligence. In addition, those tricks may nourish his self-confidence and make him dare to opine. His creativity will also develop if you listen to and appreciate his opinion.
