Kid's self confidence????

So, my son (6) has some crazy self confidence issues and I was wondering if he is the only one like this.....


When he thinks he can do something ( usually something rediculous, like pick Daddy up) he will insist, and tell you that you are flat out wrong ( over confident)


But conversely, if he thinks he can't do it, even if he can ( like reading, he can read, he just thinks he can't) he will sit there and whine, and nearly cry because he "can't do it"  yet, if I break it down word by word, rather then a full sentence, he usually can, and without even sounding the word out.

Anyone have a kid who is overly and underly? confident?

Mommy of FOUR!!
