If you are a parent, then you can expose your child to be more producers and help them to work through the destroyers.

Play stimulates greater levels of social engagement and volunteering in children. If you play with your child and spend more time, it gives you a chance to know better your child and your child can know & trust you more.
2. Encourage Their Talents And Nurture Their Special Interests
It is important to encourage your child’s talents and give praise. Your positive feedback increases his/her confidence because your kids measure their achievements and worth by what you think. Do not appreciate unrealistically if your child fails and shows no talent at a particular skill. Praise their efforts and reassure that it is ok and tell them some things take repeated effort and practice. Honor their special interests as long as it does not interfere with responsibilities like schoolwork. You can also remind your child about the skills he/she possesses and how they can develop and use.
3. Screen Out Child’s Friends Who Pull Down The Child’s Character
People, who are around your child, influence his/her behavior and model values. So today’s parents need to be vigilant as to who is modeling what behavior to their children. There are two extremes in which parents has their thinking, one side they think it is ok to experience a lot of different value systems while growing up and another side they protect from all outside influences. This is differing from their idea and beliefs. The right answer between these two extremes is to get your values across to “walk your talk” by living your values for your child.
4. Give Special Duties And Let Them Make Decisions
It is another way to raise a confident child and develop their internalize values. This helps them feel more valuable and desirable behavior of teaching skills from maintaining household duties inside and outside. If you give a particular job to your children, it seems them unique and increases their confidence. When your kids get a chance to make decisions, then they get confidence in their good judgment.
5. Let Them Express Their Feelings Comfortably
Children, who never express their emotions, become more reserved than who express their feelings more. Too much expression of feelings and too much control of feelings both are dangerous for children in the adult life. The children decide that feelings that accompany the ups and downs of their daily life are not worthwhile. So there is need to give some space to express their feelings and manage their emotions.
You should teach your child to practice making positive self-statements because self-take is a must in everything they do. When your children come to you, it is important to hear why they are feeling down in the dumps. This gives a way to understand your children’s problem and you can give them effective solutions.
