Parenting Different Personalities in Kids: 3 Ways to Encourage Your Kids' Uniqueness & Interests!

Every kid has a unique personality. Kids are drawn naturally to things they like. Parents should encourage this. Here's a few ways to do this:

  • Never compare siblings to one another. My daughters are so different. One is all sports, no frills. The other is all frills and not much else. 
  • Every day, I make an effort to encourage both of them in their natural abilities, keeping my own likes and dislikes at bay. 
  • I let my kids be themselves without pressure to change. I hope this will help them find their passion as adults to have a long-lasting career doing what they love.

So true, Holly Budde . You have to adapt and change your parenting for each kid based on his/her personality, needs, etc. And also encourage them to be the wonderful, unique person they are. Parenting is HARD! :-)

Spot on, Holly Budde - each child is unique, and we as parents have to flex with them. You said it, Donna John - parenting is a marathon, not a sprint, LOL!
