The WHAT SWOT

A simple tool to help you support your child through difficult challenges, friendships and problems

The WhatSwat helps boosts self-esteem, personal resources and sense of independence by focusing on individual strengths and using them to create ideas and solutions. 

Why is this important?

  • Self-esteem can take a hit when we feel dependent on other people and powerless to change the situation.
  • We can end up focusing on weaknesses and problems rather than using our unique resources and strengths to find solutions.
  • It’s our strengths, not our weaknesses that help us through life’s challenges.
  • We can encourage our kids to see they have a choice in every difficult situation – even if it’s not ideal or particularly comfortable. Feeling helpless is something we want to avoid.
