The uniqueness of Every Child

The most important aspect of your child’s developing personality; however is its utter individuality. Children have the right to be themselves, regardless of what their parents may have hoped them to be. A parent’s deliberate effort to impose direction on a child’s personality will be futile, in any case, if it runs counter to the combined shaping forces of nature and experience. It is unlikely that any amount of pressuring will transform a quiet, contemplative child into the star athlete of his father’s day dreams, or a restless, energetic youngster into a classical scholar. Be sensitive instead, to your child’s particular way of responding to the world, and you will help him find the confidences he need to develop his own personality and talents to the fullest.
