What Are Your Child’s Strengths?


Children are so overscheduled and busy these days that I think sometimes it results in a lack of children reaching their potential in different areas.  I don’t mean being the next professional athlete or singing superstar.  I just mean slowing down and taking the time to develop a well rounded child.  As a basketball coach of young children, I am frequently having conversations with parents suggesting other leisure activities for children.  There is no point in practicing/playing basketball hours and hours per week leaving no time for other activities or unstructured free time.  When we do this, our children suffer.  It does not allow them time to develop other talents/skills.  

Need some help in determining and finding positive attributes and talents in your children?  Start off by finishing some of these statements with your child.  Not only will answering these questions help guide you to where your child shines it may even help your teenager pick a career path as they get older.   

1.  My child is best at…
2.  My child has an amazing ability to…
3.  My child is frequently recognized for…
4.  My child smiles when…
5.  My child is happiest when…
6.  My child participates the most when…
7.  When free time is available my child….
8.  My child is highly interested in…
9.  My child is highly motivated by…
10.  My child takes pride in his/her work when…

Here is a game to play to help remind your child about their positive qualities.  Create a list of different qualities such as patient, calm, cooperative, etc. or use the Positive Affirmation cards below. Choose a quality or flip a card.  Discuss with your child examples of when they have shown each specific quality.  You will see that with certain qualities you will have many examples for your child indicating a strength in that area.
