I've come to the conclusion that generally speaking, children (and adults) from private schools ooze confidence! Which I personally think is fantastic.
I'm sure this is not always the case, but just looking at the people I have dealt with through work and socially over the past 15 years, this would generally appear to be the case.
I grew up going to public schools and the children were very different from our private school counterparts - we lacked confidence and were quite shy in comparison to the others who could strike up and hold a conversation with anyone, were exceptionally well mannered nand well, they just ooxed confidence! At age 21 I was hopeless and after a couple of years working for a small company amongst lots of private school colleagues and business partners I somehow managed to get rid of my shyness.
So, can anyone tell me if you have children who attend a private school why you think confidence is so normal?
I'd love for my children to be confident and whilst they are for the most part (lots of encouragement from us), I wondered how the private schools seemed to do this given I'm sure many people are not naturally confident people.
