An activity that amuses one child may quickly bore the other. If you have more than one child, you have most likely already gone through this. As parents, we must make time to discover and recognise what makes each child unique and then nurture those characteristics.
In 3 Simple Steps, You Can Nurture Your Child’s Talent
1. Identify and observe your child’s talent.
Every child has a unique set of skills and abilities. As I previously indicated, each child is special in their own ways. Determine what your child’s talent or strength is. Keep track of your child’s favourite toys and games. Have an accurate reply to the questions they pose.
2. Recognise child’s forte rather than ability.
Make an effort to not only develop your child’s talent but also to improve their self-esteem. You can motivate your child by praising their efforts in completing a task. Your child will learn that honing one’s skills takes time and effort. Even children that are “skilled” in a particular subject work hard to further develop their natural ability.”
3. Provide resources to help your child develop their interests.
Create a rich learning environment for your child, depending on their interests.
What If I Have No Idea What My Child’s Strengths Are?
It can be challenging to see your child’s strengths, especially if they are young. You can start determining your child’s skills by offering different things to do or seeing which toys and activities they enjoy.
Recognise Your Abilities and Learning Style
My passion for art has always piqued my interest. I am a visual learner, both as a teacher and now as a mother, but I am aware that my learning style may not be appropriate for my children. Understanding how my students learned and now how my children learn was critical for me.
Understanding the abilities of young children allows you to assist them in growing and developing their skills and challenging them when necessary. Each child is unique.
