Building Blocks

“Building blocks” is a term I use to describe how several key categories fit together to form the backbone of a child’s potential for success. While many parents differ on what “success” means for their children, these areas provide foundations for learning and, ultimately, happiness in children. If kids do not develop properly in the following categories, they will compensate by putting roadblocks on the possibilities of their lives. Children often eliminate options for their own happiness due to discomfort and a lack of foundational qualities.
