Maybe the worst in your kid is actually a strength.
on November 5, 1997
Cynthia Tobias and Carol Funk have written a great book to help parents affirm and encourage their kids. Even when what the kids do seems very negative, underneath is a strength, a quality that can be nurtured.
Stubbornness channeled in the right direction becomes steadfastness. A loud mouth might signal someone who is not afraid to speak up for what he believes. Doing things "my way" could indicate a spirit of independence and adventure.
Parents can learn to take the worst traits of their children and turn them into positive strengths and Tobias and Funk will show you how.
At the end of each of the 80 sections there is help to recognize the strength, and ways to bring the child to accountability for his actions.
