Publisher Description

With this groundbreaking work, educator Jenifer Fox is poised to change the conversation about education in America. For too long, parents and teachers have focused on identifying and "fixing" kids' weaknesses to improve academic performance. Passionately written and informed by Fox's twenty-five years of experience, Your Child's Strengths turns that flawed paradigm on its head. Fox's strengths-based philosophy provides the tools to prepare kids for the future in a world that demands greater adaptability and creative thinking than ever before. Your Child's Strengths will give parents and teachers the tools to discover strengths in three main areas: Activity Strengths, the tasks that make you feel engaged and energized; Relationship Strengths, the things you do for and with others that make you feel valued and competent; and Learning Strengths, the unique ways you approach and understand new information. All three strengths work in tandem. Pairing inspiring firsthand accounts of success with practical workbook tools and an outline of the award-winning Affinities Program Fox has implemented at her own school, this much-needed book is a user-friendly guide for parents, teachers, and administrators that will improve individual performance and an indispensable road map for young people and society to a future that plays to strengths.

"This just reinforces all our philosophies about raising children. Children need empathy and respect and it isn't helpful to focus on failures and punishment. It is also interesting to think about my own strengths and what things make me thrive. "

— Joni (5 out of 5 stars)

Quotes

  • “The book is written in a lively and engaging style, and sprinkled with anecdotes from Fox’s teaching life and her own experiences as a student who was frustrated and uncomfortable in a traditional school setting. Clearly, writing is one of Fox’s strengths, as is her inspiring passion for helping kids lead meaningful lives.”

    " Interesting idea on teaching, but it should have been shorter. I could have gotten all the information from a half-hearted skimming. Its redeaming feature is the activities to find strengths at the end. "

    " Some good content but the authors perspectives sometimes irritated me. I just couldn't force myself to finish it. A good skim would have gotten the point across for me. I did like the sample tests/ evaluations in the back. They were fun for my kids and I to do. "

    " So far, this is a great book to understand strengths for kids. Its more for pre-teen and teenaged kids but gives you options on how to apply it to younger kids. I'm reading through the workbook and am going to try some of it on my daughter. "
