  • My daughter will be 9 in a week. She's kind of a born leader, I think. Maybe it's just because she's the older sibling. However, we do encourage her to volunteer for positions in student council at school... My son is 6 1/2. He's a follower. I have been trying to get him to be a little more assertive by letting him know how proud I am when he does well in leadership positions (if he was door holder in class that day, etc.).

    I do remind my children that while it is good to sometimes be the leader, it is always important to listen to the input of your peers and mentors. Sometimes, it is ok to follow.

  • Part my my daughter's "chores", are to read to her younger brothers and sister. She gets to teach them stuff which makes her the leader. And it makes her feel really good when they learn something!
