"He's got the best for me", says Christian youth worker on young people's confidence

by Hannah Tooley

He works with young people in his Voice in the City choir in Liverpool, and told Premier adults and other young people need to make children at ease in social situations: "The kids are a lot more comfortable within computer games and computers and social media because there's not one-to-one contact, but on a social skill basis they're probably limited in a lot of ways."

Mr Moore was speaking after research by Sky shows 40 percent of young people lack confidence face-to-face.

The study also concluded that boys say they are more confident than girls and some girls can link confidence to appearance.

He added that Christians need to tell young people that God loves them just the way they are: "One thing that I've found out with God as my father - and it's taken a long time - as I know what I'm his son and he's my father, he's got the best for me, so I can let him chase me and discipline me and realign me and get me in line to what he wants me to do."
