In honor of Global Day of Parents, we’re sharing our story of how we raise our kids to be confident…

Needless to say, we are very proud of our daughters, Scarlett and Sabrina.

We know every parent says that, but both of our girls have shown tremendous confidence and have performed and spoken in front of thousands of people at Grant’s 10X Growth Conference. Not bad for ‘kids their age’!

Of course, we feel like this is because of the values that we have instilled in our children. 

Here are some things we do to build and reinforce their confidence. 

Kids understand – talk to them that way 

Ever since they were born, we talked to our children as if they could understand — because they do.

Granting them the respect of communicating to them like that not only gives them confidence; it also sets a precedent of how they should talk to others. 

We don’t think that they are just kids and ‘don’t know better’. That’s a disservice to them.

As parents, we’ve both let Sabrina and Scarlett know clearly that their contribution matters and is important to the success of our family.

Furthermore, because we address our children this way, we also let them know they can earn adult rights.

Our kids can make mistakes

A big part of how we raise confident kids is that the girls are allowed to make mistakes.

This ability to make mistakes makes them less afraid of taking risks and trying new things. We know adults who can’t even do that!

That isn’t to say that it’s okay for Scarlett and Sabrina to misbehave. However, when they are honest and come to us when they do something wrong, they know the consequences will be far less than if we find out on our own.

And when they do misbehave, we encourage them to make up for whatever damage was done. That’s the deal. 

Having a standard of honesty, courage, and integrity are cornerstones to raising confident kids

I don’t think Grant and I are much different from any other parents. The main measure of our success as parents is if our daughters are happy.

Long-term that means they would grow up to be contributing members of society, making a difference for the better. We believe confidence will continue to play a huge role in the process. 

Build an Empire,
