Probably the greatest gift that we can ofter our children is self-confidence. A child should always be made to understand that no dream is impossible. I like to refer to it as, "taking the 't' out of can't". Many of our greatest leaders have overcome tremendous odds. No obstacle is too great. So let's teach our children that they 'can' do what others have considered impossible. Blessings.

I totally agree. I feel that if's there's one word that should be struck from the dictionary, it's the word "impossible", because I don't think impossible exists.

Hi Pose123! I like that and I completely agree with you. Building the confidence of the young will help them seek a better future and believe in themselves more. I do agree that encouraging them and teaching them that they "can do" whatever and wherever they put their hearts into will make them go a long,long way. Take care and have a nice day!

This is a very positive discussion and I am very encouraged by it. I believe and agree that the children need to be educated from tender age. Training their mindset while they are still young would definetely work wonders. Today, I am involved in a financial training program for children. We train them in financial aspects of life as early as the age of nine years old.

Yes, I always teach my boys that they can achieve anything that they want and not to be afraid of challenges. I'm always providing positive reinforcement to them.

It sounds like a good idea, although there are certain things one cannot do, like men giving birth, and women growing beards, or begetting children, but there are things that even though we are unable to finish, at least we can try. So the thing is do we try or do we sit on our rear ends, because it is impossible. It may be impossible but we should try. If one fails, it should not be because of lacking of trying.
