Developing your child’s strengths can help them reach their full potential and build self-confidence. But how do you know what his or her strengths are? First, participate in a variety of activities together and observe which ones he or she enjoys most. Take note of what kinds of toys your child plays with. Are they puzzles that require a great deal of thinking, or are they balls and jump ropes that require a lot of movement? Let your child choose as often as possible and remember what their preferences tend to be. Finally, listen to your child. His or her strengths will eventually come out in conversation. Whatever strengths your child has, encourage him or her every day.
