Today, I would like to encourage you to take a moment and think of the characteristics in your child that make him or her special.  I think we know the characteristics in our hearts…but, it’s time to make a list!

When you write down the special characteristics in your child, it will help you be intentional in the way that you parent.  Maybe your child is really good at encouraging others…speak that gift into his or her life.  “I saw the way that you encouraged Noah today when he was having trouble writing his name.  You are great at encouraging others…that is one of your special traits.”

So many of our words mold and shape our children. Be intentional in pointing out the qualities that set them apart in a positive way.
