Celebrate Your Child's Skills at Family Gatherings

Many families will be gathering this year to celebrate the Fourth of July. Extended family gatherings are great occasions to boost your child's sense of accomplishment.

Every child needs to feel capable and appreciated. Help your child identify a new skill to show the rest of the family.

If your child is learning to cook, serve a dish you have made together. If your child is learning to read, set aside some time for reading to Uncle Steve.

Asking your child to demonstrate a new skill shows that you value what your child is learning. This can boost your elementary schooler's self-esteem and provide the confidence to keep learning new things.

Sharing a skill can also bring your child closer to family members. And that can make future family gatherings even more special for everyone.
