Help kids reach their full potential
(NC)-Children have boundless potential. As parents we invest in their education, enroll them in sports and even support their interest in learning an instrument because we want them to excel in school and in life. Sometimes, the challenge is to bring their potential to the surface and discover what your child's strengths are. Here are some tips to help children reach their full potential:
Find the right outlets: Rather than trying to contain or discipline a child who likes to stand out, what about helping them stand out more? Consider giving a child like this more responsibility in the classroom for a big project or a leadership role - like a class fundraiser. You'll be surprised how this will help them meet their need to get noticed in a responsible way.
Support their ambition: If kids have a cause they're passionate about, parents and teachers have the responsibility to give them the resources they need to succeed. Websites like www.ccfcanada.ca offer easy to use, step-by-step ways to organize a fundraiser for students of all ages.
Integrate their passion into the curriculum: If a child finds something that excites them, like helping a child in need in another country, consider integrating that into your curriculum. Teach about that country and have students research issues that affect children overseas.
