The Context® ParentContext, Parenting, Strengths

It comes naturally to you to record important memories for your child and maintaining family traditions that will stick with them for years to come. You also share lessons you’ve learned and funny stories from your childhood, bonding with your child in a special way.”

Do you have CONTEXT?

Celebrate:

  • That you have a relevant, historical perspective
  • Your love for the backstory
  • That you learn from past mistakes
  • Having respect for your predecessors or elders

Evaluate:

  • Am I too focused on the past?
  • Am I holding a grudge?
  • Questioning the perspectives without trust?
  • Am I resisting change?

“I remember when” is likely a common phrase around your house. You love pulling up memories of your kids when they were younger and showing them how far they’ve come. You might even have a special scrapbook or memory box that you pull out once in awhile to remind yourself how far you’ve come as well. In addition to the memories, you have a keen way of finding the back story to situations and problems and use the information to help your children find their way forward by knowing the root of the cause. You also show them the path which has been laid out by previous generations, learning through their lessons as a way to not repeat their mistakes. And speaking of mistakes, be careful not to hold grudges when your children mess up. It’s how they learn and what they learn now, will serve them as they grow.

Does this sound like you?
