Learner, Parenting, Strengths, PracticalThe LEARNER® Parent

“Share the joy of learning with your child. Explore new worlds together through classes, books and experiences which you can reflect on together. When you discover a child’s passion, foster it by exploring further.”

Are you a LEARNER?

Celebrate:

  • You love everything about learning
  • Your offer great perspective on a variety of subjects
  • You appreciate different ways of learning
  • Mistakes are just another way to learn

Evaluate:

  • Am I getting lost in learning?
  • Am I a know-it-all?
  • Am I applying what I learn?
  • Am I sharing/using my knowledge appropriately?

Having children is just one big opportunity to learn and you love it! Not only do you get to expand your knowledge, but you get to witness each new lesson your child is discovering. And when you discover together? That’s pure magic. Remember to share what you learn with your child, pass on your knowledge, while also tapping into your own curiosity to learn more about them and their perspectives. When you discover a child’s passion, help them to take it to the next level and explore it further together. Keep in mind that you have a lot of experience and knowledge, and what may be obvious to you, is still new for them. Step back and learn something all over again through their eyes and you just might be surprised at what they teach you.
