Kid SpeachDo you know that even kids start to fear public speaking at an early age? This may be because of how media portrays public speaking. When children watch shows, they feel that they should also fear public speaking without knowing exactly what real reasons are behind their fears. Even adults fear public speaking. In fact they have to go through public speaking trainings in Singapore just to get rid of their fears.

It is highly important that children will know that public speaking is nothing to fear. Kids should be able to grow their skills at an early age because it will help them cope better when they grow up. Kids who learn to love or at least not be afraid of public speaking end up being good speakers and presenters when they grow older.

Here are some of the things that can be done to help kids lose their fear of public speaking:

1.       Practice Makes Perfect

It is highly important for children to practice at an early age instead of just learning about it. Kids need to know how it feels like. They should understand the adrenaline rush that they might feel when they are in front of a crowd even at an early age. Instead of fearing that adrenaline rush, what they must feel is elation because of what they are feeling. Practicing often can make kids lose their fear easily.

2.       Make Sure that Children will Speak in Small Groups First

There is a chance that children will still feel intimidated even if you let them practice in front of the whole class. Letting children speak in front of small groups will help them get used to it. Slowly, you can incorporate two small groups until the whole class can listen to one child speak. It will be empowering for children and at the same time, not too daunting.

3.       Play Games with Public Speaking Involved

Games can always make learning fun especially for kids who might get bored easily with the things that should be done. Remember to only play games that may be related to what they have to learn about because it will help well. Do remember that with games, kids will also not feel bad if ever they make mistakes. They will remember the fun more rather than the possible mistakes that they have made with speaking in public.
