Every child is imbued with a talent as unique as their personality. As parents, we’re in a crucial role to discover, nurture, and hone these talents, so that your child can find their place in this world. As idealistic as it may sound, the sense of purpose still remains to be innate in each of us. You would want to see your child truly happy for doing something that they take delight in. When their talents are nurtured, you’re opening the way for them to live the kind of life they will enjoy.
In our Chinese School in New York, we provide talent classes for children to earn a way to rediscover and develop their passion. We know you can also achieve this nurturing at home, and here are helpful tips you can apply:
- Be extra observant about what your child is interested in.
Their talents are usually activities they can do without minding about the time and people. If they like singing and humming nursery rhymes as a child, they could have potential in music and singing. This can be an initial stage of their talent.
- Nurture their talent by creating opportunities in which their interests are developed.
As a previously cited instance, when your child enjoys singing and music, play the songs they enjoy when you’re at home or in the car, and also, enroll them to Summer School Programs that cater to these potentials.
- Praise your child whenever they display their talent.
Affirming your child’s talent is your way of strengthening their self-esteem and confidence. This way, they can fully embrace what they’re capable of doing, and in so doing, gladly share their talents to others.
