Want to boost your child's self-efficacy? Here are some tips from your therapy source
- Mastery Experiences: When a child performs a task successfully, it strengthens his/her sense of self-efficacy. Providing children with “just right” challenges is so beneficial.
- Social Modeling: When children observe their peers work hard and accomplish a task, it helps increase their belief in themselves that they can accomplish the task too.
- Social Persuasion: When children receive specific verbal encouragement from others that they will be successful, it helps them believe that they have the skills and capabilities to succeed.
- Psychological Responses: A positive mood can influence your abilities to succeed.
