Kids Series: Raising Leaders, Artists, Engineers & Goofballs


Any parent will tell you that kids are funny:  they each come with their own unique skill sets, interests, passions and dreams.

And as any parent will also tell you, it is hard finding out how to develop each child, individually!

How do you encourage the athletic daughter while also encouraging your academic son?  What benefits does the goofball kid have, who has a ton of energy and makes people laugh all the time?  How do we help the child who never stops talking to control their thought process, as well as helping the quiet child to express themselves without forcing them into it?
