Welcome to Day 1 of 21 Ways to Connect With Your Kids! Now, we are not going through this for 21 Days -- we're going to do the first 5 days together and go from there. It has been a busy few weeks around here, so I'm excited to spend some intentional time with my children. What's better? I don't need to think too hard what to do! Kathi's book, 21 Ways to Connect with Your Kids is packed with some great ideas!
From Kathi's book:
Connecting with Your Kid's Personality
I know my kids pretty well. I know that Kimberly could spend all day watching Gilmore girls while Justen would rather die than see one episode. I know that both of my kids are into Steampunk (which, when it comes to literary genres is about as far as you can get from me and my women's fiction). I know that Justen has an affinity for numbers (the kid can remember my car's license number off the top of his head) and I know that for some reason unbeknownst to me, both of my kids have a soft spot for our mean, cranky cat Zorro who no one else seems to like.
But, I don't know anything about your kids. I don't know what makes them literally squeal with excitement. What quirks they have. Or what they'd do tonight if they were given $20, ten gallons of gas and a chauffeur to drive them anywhere they wanted.
And, you're probably wondering how I can help you to connect with your kids if I don't know them.
I thought of that, too, and I have a plan. My friend and personality expert, Cheri Gregory has created a simple questionnaire that will help you to determine your kid's personality type.
So, to get started, answer the questions below about your child on this simple quiz at: Discover Your Child's Personality Type
Knowing this information will help us connect with our children on a deeper level. So, be sure to take the questionnaire to help you tap into your child's personality before we dive into the activities!
