Word of the Week: “Confidence”

Parents! As we are entering week three of our Keys 2 Life Performing Arts Summer Camp, we want to share with you some of the things we have been teaching our campers! ๐Ÿ™Œโฃ
โฃ
Last week the word of the week was confidence:โฃ
โฃ
“๐˜๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต; ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฆ๐˜ง ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด, ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ด, ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ข ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ญ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ง” โฃ
โฃ
We discussed how confidence means feeling sure of yourself and your abilities – not in an arrogant way, but in a realistic, secure way. Confidence isn’t about feeling superior to others. It’s a quiet inner knowledge that you’re capable. Confident people feel secure rather than insecure.โฃ
โฃ
The campers were very engaged and gave great insight. Parents, what additional insight can you share regarding confidence?๐Ÿ‘‡
