|5/30/13 First LAST day of school|
Strong willed children often turn out to be leaders who are not swayed by peer pressure...their passion can become compassion and their stubbornness persistence. They will be fearless in tackling the causes they care about...
I was thinking of how I'm often told that I'm "paying for my raising" regarding dealing with my very high-spirited, dramatic, and strong-willed daughter. But I really don't like the negative connotations that follow the label of a "strong-willed" child, because it's not really so much what personality traits your child has as it is about how you guide and develop those traits. So, rather than label her as a "strong-willed child," I like to use the word, "determined." You see, if I could explain Lucy in one word, it would be passionate. Whatever she does, she does it with passion--that can mean she is passionately excited about something, passionately happy about something, or passionately MAD about something! She is either all into something, or she could absolutely care less. It takes a lot of determination to live life with passion. You don't give up or give in easily, or really at all; it's all or nothing.
