Sometimes the traits and behaviors that seem most frustrating and annoying in our children are indicators of positive strengths and future success. Stubbornness can be steadfastness. A strong will may exhibit leadership material. Arguing may indicate negotiating skills. When we identify the behavior in each child and see beyond it to the positive strength it contains, we will then be able to help him succeed by working with his learning style.
