Build on Your Son’s Strengths and Build Up His Confidence
The Authentic Happiness site has a great strength survey for children to help them discover their 24 character strengths.
This tool is helpful in getting boys to focus on their strengths and to use these strengths to be their best. I had my son complete the questionnaire and post the results on his wall as a a visual aid. It also helps to reinforce positive feelings when he is having a bad day.
Puberty can be a challenging time for boys because they are going through physical, emotional, and mental changes. These changes can come about suddenly or slowly and can cause mixed feelings in boys. They start to compare themselves to other boys and doubt their abilities. If your son knows his hidden talents, he is better equipped to deal with peer pressure. It also gives him the self determination to succeed in life.
Having a tool that showcases his strengths is a great way to help ease some of those challenges.
