It’s so valuable to identify the uniqueness of your child. Then they feel accepted, loved, and wanted by you. While children long to belong and fit in with their peers, it’s the parent’s actual acceptance that gives them the security they need. Then “fitting in” and being like others loses its power.
If you reflect carefully you will notice that your child has certain qualities that make him or her unique. While most kids go through similar stages, all kids are different in the ways they adapt to the changes in their cognitive growth, bodily changes, and personality development. They also adapt differently to various environments that they are exposed to including home, school, and extra-curricular activities.
