How To Support Your Child`s Talent
Nurture your kids talents and abilities

Children are different; some will realise their talents and abilities earlier than others. In some instances, parents will be the ones who notice such talents before the kids do. Children vary from quite, bookish to free spirited ans outgoing. With the right environment, which should be your responsibility to create, the kids bloom and become successful.

To achieve this you might consider;

  • Words of encouragement; praise your kids in what they do. Show them that they are capable. Be the first support system of their work. Some parents normally mock their children especially when their talents and abilities do not align with their expectations, which is very wrong. Success can not be forced and neither can talents. Instead, be a mentor to your children and help them find the right path while exploring their talents
  • Create a safe environment with your children; As mostly observed, most parents have drawn a thick line between them and their kids, making it difficult to approach. As a parent, let your child feel free to express themselves to you. This is the best way to learn the likes and dislikes of your child, allowing them to grow with your guidance
  • Allow them to try; most parents make their children feel inferior by telling them 'you don`t know anything' or `you need time to learn'. True as  it may sound, it is better to try early and learn as they grow. Some talents will open doors earlier than others; some will even starting earning money and/or fame at a young age. As a parent, be their manager instead of their roadblock. Show them the direction.
  • Spend time with them; The only way you will realise your child`s abilities is by spending quality time with them. It is also the only time you will help them if need be. Equally, this is the best time to nurture your kid and help those who are yet to learn their talents by engaging in different activities.
  • Be ready to spend and invest; Some talents may need an extra hand, which will then require you to  use money. Always be ready for such commitments without feeling burdened. 
  • Create a network;  As soon as you realize your child`s talent and abilities, it is best you start creating a network, to nurture and boost them.

Try as much as you can to be a 'parent'. Do not grant external forces such as teachers or relatives the responsibility and too much freedom to your child. Win their trust and be the best teacher and friend they need
