Every parent wants to understand their children to unlock their potential & make them happy.
Many parents fail to recognize that their kids have different ways. Gail Swift recognized this with her young children – that they work in a different way than she does.
She describes these differences as “I thrive on having a lot of things going on at once and work best under pressure. I brainstorm with my mouth then see if it’s a viable option. Noah, my oldest, needs to finish what he starts. He likes to have a plan before he begins, but if he’s put in a room with kids that need the details and kids that want the big picture, he can find the middle ground and bridge the gap. Tyler, my youngest, doesn’t need to finish what he starts (which can make chore time difficult), but excels at physical tasks. He’s a natural with body language and can usually tell when someone is having a bad day”
As a parent, you need to figure out your child’s strengths and natural abilities. Identifying this, helps them find an optimal path in life, find a career in which they will excel and to gives them the best chance to succeed.
