Kids feel that they have control over many things that happen to them. 42% of local youth surveyed have this asset in their lives. Asset Biiilding Activities: 1. Children have many different interests and talents. Encouraging them to follow their interests can give them a sense of power. 2. Slowly introduce infants to new experiences. Watch hou they respond, so you know when they're ready for more. 3. Toddlers say "No" as part of developing a sense of independence. Be patient and positive with them. 4. Give children the freedom to play and experiment with different toys. Their sense of personal power grows when ; • ;fe they can make choices. 5. Find ways for children to feel proud of their '!':}. accomplishments. Scout badges or 4-H ribbons are a great way to help build a child's personal power. 6.
