Building confidence - special talents
Month 6 · Activity 13 · Character Traits
- Use the child’s name and encourage him to use names for the children and adults in their lives
- Find a “special” talent this month in a child. Perhaps it is doing a great job with an If Not You, Who? activity, waking up with a smile on their face, dribbling a soccer ball, obeying a request the first time you ask, making their bed very neatly, etc. By acknowledging one talent other talents will surface as confidence builds.
- Watch this video with a child about liking himself
Find a family photograph and let the child name all the people in the picture. Ask what talent each person in the photo has that the child thinks is special.
Have a child state a talent another family member or friend shows - rides a two-wheeler, makes a yummy dinner, etc. and why they would like to have that talent also.
