Jack was a happy baby with a big belly laugh he used with great regularity. He was a curious and adventurous toddler with a booming personality and the voice to go with it.
His first few years of school were filled with curiosity and the desire to learn. Then, his voice became quiet, his smiles infrequent and his urge to try and learn new things disappeared.
What happened? Jack (a fictional character to illustrate this point) lost his confidence and self-esteem somewhere along the line.
If he doesn’t regain confidence, Jack’s tumultuous teens will be even more challenging.
