In its 4th installment, Goofi Borno Golpo series targets a new theme: Teaching self-confidence. Goofi Borno Golpo 4 is the first book series in Bengali to teach children about self-confidence.
Teaching self-confidence to children
“Who can tell this?” or “Who can make this possible?” – when such questions are thrown to a group of kids, as you may have noticed, some kids respond very quickly. Some of them respond after a while and rest never respond. Once in a while, you may have noticed some kids say, “I think I can’t do that”.
Why these children respond differently and in different manner? The very reason, in a single word, is the level of one’s self-confidence. Confidence is a kind of comprehension or understanding or mental ability of human mind, which helps to decide, “Can I do or do not?” or “possible-Impossible” types of questions.
Confidence shows ones mental and behavioral statements and helps individuals to gather strength and capacity to perform the job properly. He, who has enough self-confidence, has the courage to discover unknown, to turn the impossible into possible.
Self-confidence arises from self-awareness and this self-awareness is a part of emotional intelligence. And the foundation of one’s self-confidence should build properly at early in the childhood.
The sooner a child become self-confident, the quicker she gains the ability of learning and understanding. We can recognize those kids easily and say to ourselves – “what a talent!” Such a self-confident, talented child have strong capacity to cope up with emotions and can figure out his or her personality. This type of confident children can declare bravely by saying – “Yes, I can make this possible”.
