For a child who lacks confidence in the use of equipment, use the playground or gym when it is quieter with fewer children to compete with. Give positive encouragement and praise for any effort the child makes. Ensure success with the 'just right' level of activity, which may mean that they need to start with a simple movement activity, building up to an age-appropriate skill level over a few sessions.
