Can you teach confidence?

Hi moms my son is 9 months and loves to stand and play and walk with you holding his hands but he doesn't have the confidence in himself to even try to do those things on his own. He won't even stand against anything without me to hold onto. I know he can do it and I praise him when I can let go for a few mins but I want him to feel like he's doing a good job and not worry about falling which he hasn't

    He'll get it in time. Just keep doing what you are doing and don't worry about it.

      Thanks ladies! I assumed he'd do it when he's ready I just wanted to make sure I'm not pushing him to hard or not hard enough

        He wasn't unless I was pushing it with him. But good news he found his confidence and now shows off his new standing alone skill
