We teach her to be gracious when she wins a soccer game, and her friends and peers lose. I remind her that we don't brag, and we offer up good things to the opponent. As a friend, we include others, and don't leave people out. For example, her first sleep over, we had 3 girls because they all eat together at school daily. It was fun! I teach her to do her best and help others. It all come up in the daily activities we do. I do think my oldest is a natural leader, and I'm trying to make sure she utilizes this characteristic with grace and poise.

I think being a leader comes from self-confidence. If you are confident in your skills or yourself, you will feel more comfortable talking about and showing others how or what to do. Self-confidence comes within, but parents can encourage by praising and acknowledging their children's good skills/actions.
