@Thrively FINDS Your Kid(s) Passion and Strengths – #DadChat #Giveaways #Back2School

Category: #DadChat

Passion

What parent hasn’t struggled trying to help their kid(s) find their strengths, their passion? What parent doesn’t worry when their kid(s) are going through life without direction, playing video games, watching tv, and complaining about being bored? It happened to me. I finally “got lucky” when my boys did find their passions. It sure would have been easier had I had Thrively.com. We have “Teach” aka Angela Maiers with us for a Back2School night at #DadChat this Thursday August 7, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET. The topic is what MATTERS to our kids and how Thrively may be THE TOOL to help guide us to find their passion and strengths.

You Matter with Thrively

    Can Marcie take the assessment? or too young! 🙂 Anyway, will be there at #dadchat – I looked at Choose2Matter for inspiration when presenting my volunteer project for my kid’s grade school. Singapore has a system whereby volunteers are balloted earlier than non-volunteers and in the school I chose (which is very close to home), it’s less than a 10% chance of being selected!

      @disqus_mAYzV8PM6A:disqus – Thrively.com and their assessment test is for parents AND their kids but the assessment test really only is meant for kids 15 or so and younger.

    Think Thrively only works in the US! Just registered and explored, but what assessment test? Couldn’t find any 🙂

      Look closer @disqus_mAYzV8PM6A:disqus – or ASK where it is on Thursday – IF peeps can’t find it easy, @Thrively should know that? I think it’s right there – so take a look again, please?

      Actually @Mei, I think @Thrively may only be US oriented now…it will grow to The World ’cause it’s THAT GOOD!
