 Are you confident? Is your daughter?

    Yes, we both are.

    But confidence is skills-based, is honesty-driven, and varies, so (for me; DD is only 3) while my level of confidence changes based on my assessment of any present stimuli, the confidence I have in myself and ability to reason and think is steady and stable. But I think one could make the argument for that actually being self-esteem and not confidence.

    I am confident about some things, others not so much. My 6 y/o thinks she can do anything!

     Mostly, yes.  My DD is only 16 months but I'll do my best to make her confident.

    My dd is definitely confident. Some days I am and other days I am full of self doubt.

    I am not the most confident person. I have one daughter that is very confident and the other one is more reserved :)

    I am most of the time, sometimes I think she is over confident.  I think she will be a strong leader one day.

     I think many people use the two terms interchangeably, but my understanding of the terms if that self-esteem refers to how you feel about yourself overall; how much esteem, positive regard or self-love you have. Self-esteem develops from experiences and situations that have shaped how you view yourself today. Self-confidence is how you feel about your abilities and can vary from situation to situation. I may have healthy self-esteem, but low confidence about situations involving  physical endurance.
