Have two boys just entering that 'fun' pre-teen stage with different confidence issues.
One has been slightly battered by the school selection system who is retreating into himself and things he's a failure. The other desperate to be the best at something, but finding it hard, since his peer group seem to be alphas at everything.
Has anyone got any recommendations of people/activities that might help rebuild/build better self-esteem. Trying to do this from the home front, but think some external help/inspiration might be required.
