The Freak Factor
Do you want more happiness, fulfillment, and energy? Do you want to dramatically improve your productivity and increase employee performance? Do you want to improve your relationships at work and at home?

So, what should you do? Most parents think that they should find and fix their child’s weaknesses. Unfortunately, this just leads to frustration and failure.
Your child’s weaknesses are actually the best clue to their strengths. Furthermore, building on their strengths, not fixing their weaknesses, is the best strategy.
Find out how to help your kids become more of who they are, instead of trying to turn them into someone else. Encourage them to be more different and more unique, not more average and more mediocre.
