Tip – Assets #32,#39,#40 - Recognizing & Supporting Each Child's Passion
“Follow and chase your dreams." (Alexander Rossi quoted in The Union 5/27/16.) Not everyone will achieve his public prominence, but all can benefit from his advice. A child's, or adult's, passion is what brings them deep pleasure, often what they are good at or what they always enjoy doing when not doing "what they have to do". Summer is a good time to let your children explore different possibilities whether in the arts, sports, sciences, or other areas. When you see their passion, help them do more of it.
