Overview Sometimes our children's worst traits are really their best traits. Stubbornness is close to determination and steadfastness; a daring attitude later becomes courage. This book will help parents see the strengths in what they perceive are their child's weaknesses and will help them celebrate the child exactly as he or she is.
Publishers Description 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bringing Out the Best in Your Child: 80 Ways to Focus on Every Kid's Strengths?
Maybe the worst in your kid is actually a strength. Nov 5, 1997
Cynthia Tobias and Carol Funk have written a great book to help parents affirm and encourage their kids. Even when what the kids do seems very negative, underneath is a strength, a quality that can be nurtured.
Stubbornness channeled in the right direction becomes steadfastness. A loud mouth might signal someone who is not afraid to speak up for what he believes. Doing things "my way" could indicate a spirit of independence and adventure.
Parents can learn to take the worst traits of their children and turn them into positive strengths and Tobias and Funk will show you how.
At the end of each of the 80 sections there is help to recognize the strength, and ways to bring the child to accountability for his actions.
