Ds goes to a great private school which we struggle to pay for but feel its been right for him. He is bright and bubbly - however the teacher said today that he suffers with a lack of confidence. This made me feel very sad for him and I don't really know how to help him gain confidence. As I say he is very bright (teachers phrase), and shows real promise.

Drama/dance really helps with building confidence if that sort of thing would appeal to him. Or sport if he is a sporty type. Would focus on out of school things perhaps?

maybe arrange a playdate- ask the teacher for a good 'role model' whom he gets on well with and feels confident with
