The other day, Evanthia and I were playing with our toddlers at the playground, and noticing how the kids play so differently. Our two kids have been friends for over a year, and during this time, we’ve noticed differences about them and incredible, but completely unique strengths in our two little sweethearts. So this got me thinking. We have some great readers with little ones. It would be so much fun to see the distinctive differences and strengths our kids have, even at a young age. So, I want to know, what are the unique strengths you see in your child?
I’ll go first…because it’s so much fun to talk about your babies!

My son is incredibly well coordinated. He can kick a soccer ball with ease, grace and amazing accuracy, can run faster than a two year old should be able to run, and has awesome balance. He can run down a hill without tipping over, walk across a low balance beam without holding hands, and can carry bags up and down the stairs.

So…that’s my child. But I want to know a strength that your child has. Brag about your child! Please!

  1. ok, I’ll bite. My son’s strength is… he’s resilient! Anything that is going wrong is easily solved in a matter of minutes. He can take a tumble and just needs a little kiss or a hug to be all better. Even when he’s upset, he might cry for a few minutes but then he’s back to being happy. This is a good strength for him to possess because he is also very much a daredevil.

  2. I love that! This is what is so cool about little ones; we can see such unique strengths in them even at such a young age!! I love that you chose “resilient!” Awesome. Thanks, Hadyn!

  3. Fun! I love thinking about my kids’ strengths. My older son is eager to please. He responds really well to praise and affirmation. I also get the sense that he is more of a leader than a follower (not that one is better than the other, just interesting), but we’ll see how it plays out over the years. My younger son, on the other hand, is extremely imaginative!

    That’s awesome that your son is so coordinated. Little sports star in the making!

  4. Thanks for sharing, that Erica! I was thinking about these different strengths and how unique they are even among siblings. Do you think it is nature or nurture that gives our kids these unique traits? It must be so fun to have a super imaginative little one and one that you know will be a leader!

  5. My 3.5-year-old son is also very coordinated. He got a toy golf set for his birthday and, never having played with one before, whacked that ball perfectly! I was amazed! He also seems to feel no pain. Sometimes this is a good thing, he’ll fall down and get a bruise, but he shakes it off and continues right on. I’m thinking this will come in handy when he starts soccer next month.

    My daughter, who is nearly one, is very determined. Put a road block (baby gate) in front of her and she figures out a way around it or over it. She’s very observant, too. She watched another kid climbing the stairs and went right up them herself.

    I think their combined strengths mean lots of grey hair for me!

  6. Wow, Leah, those are wonderful strengths. I love when we put our little ones in new situations and they just amaze us. Thanks for sharing this!

  7. My son bobby hill is a little spoiled piece of crap. He just plays vidyha games while my hard whorking husband sells Prohpain!
