Don’t Label Your Kids: Their Potential Is Limitless

by Amy Hilbrich Davis

in Daily Insights,Parenting

Don’t label your kids. “She is the smart one,” or “He is our athlete,” or, even worse–”She is the pretty one.” When you do this, you limit your kids. By “naming” them, you are limiting their potential and defining their self worth based on one interest, one skill, or as horrifying as it sounds, their appearance. Instead of labeling your kids, praise their interests and passions, their drive to work hard, and their ability to persevere. It’s the process and work ethic that you need to encourage and praise, not the end result. Your kids will achieve amazing things. Don’t hold them back.
