Helping adults prepare children for kindergarten and life.


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.


Would you rather be smart or athletic and why?

If a friend asks you to keep a secret that you don't feel comfortable keeping, what would you do?
