Turning Annoying Kids Habits into Money-Making Profit

Recently I was reminded the value of taking a look at that little stuff that my kids do that irritated me.  My oldest daugther Anna has had a seemingly annoying habit of tying knots on anything that she can.  I've walked in on my daugther and her brother tied together, unable to separate themselves.  Anna's head hung low since she knew this was a no-no in our household.
After months of fighting her on this issues I began to wonder if, in fact, this habit could be used to her benefit.  So I brainstormed.  I have always been fond of military surplus stuff and a popular item right now are the Survival Braclets made from 550-Cord or Paracord.  I began to think, what if we could direct this desire to tie knots into something like this.  If she likes it, she could make all sorts of things and then sell them!

My natural tendency was to squash this "bad habit" rather than evaluating whether it could be molded in to something that would be profitable for Anna.  Many of the "things I hate that my kid does" I have received over the years are things you would see in a CEO of a major corporation.

 

Are you discouraging success in your kid?  Can you flip that into a positive and teach them to focus their energy in the right place?
