I hardly feel like I can ask you, my readers, a question when I have been so unfaithful to post the last couple weeks . . . but here I go anyway.
As you focus on getting to know your children (or someone else’s kids) . . .
- what questions do you think about and try to answer? (e.g. what motivates my child? what type of discipline works most effectively? what is his/her love language?)
- what do you try to observe? (e.g. how he/she interacts with other children, what school subjects he/she prefers, etc)
-OR- if your children are older, what are the types of things you observed which provided valuable information about them?
I want to be more intentional about getting to know my daughter – really know her: her heart, her personality, her strengths, her weaknesses, her tendencies, etc. – and I would love a list of items or questions I could occassionally peruse and decide to observe over a period of time.
Of course, you’ll see the suggestions in the comments, but I’ll also post them at some point for you to use as a resource as well.
