Most of the country are still facing lockdown and certain country are still extending their lockdown due to COVID-19. Hence, now parents have more time to spend time with their kids and family. Although we all stay at home, yet most parents work from home while kids are busy with their online classes. Due to this situation, parents have the tendency to spend less time with their kids.
To overcome this situation, parents have to spend more time with their kids and make sure their kids buck up more skills and talents during this COVID-19. So here are few ways to discover your kids’ talents and skills that will be very helpful for them in the future too.
1. Get Known of your Kid’s Interest
Parents may think playing games especially online games are such a waste of time because kids spend most of their time in gaming compared to studying. But do you all know, nowadays gamers are earning more money than white-collar workers. So your kids are not merely playing online games, they even tend to learn more about graphics, animation, storytelling or problem-solving. So through these techniques, kids are able to learn and develop their own gaming stories and they might able to sell off their gaming ideas to the developers and earn in the future. It’s a great business tho! So parents instead of condemning them, do give them some credits and encourage them to do and play well in those games that they are involved. Even parents who can spare some time, do join with your kids and have some ideas on what they are playing on.
2. Give them choices
It is understandable that you love to give everything and anything that you can provide for your child. Perhaps some parents would provide their best for their children because they want their kids to experience things that they didn’t go through during their childhood. But if you, parent pressures your kids to do things that you are interested in, and definitely your kids will not enjoy their activity that you have pushed them in. So before sending them to any classes, ask their opinions and ideas on what they are interested in. Let your kids explore different activities and you can know what is really grabbing their attention. Do give them a chance to try and error in their life, as no one is perfect in this world.
3. Give Encouragement
Out of sudden, if your kid starting to do some doodles or drawing, don’t be surprised parents. Just join them and see what they are doing. You might be thrilled and find wonders over their work. Some kids are even able to write a poem, short stories or even riddles, just keep encouraging them to do the best and make the best collections out of those valuable drawings or writing. The more encouragement you give them, the bolder they will be to everyone. Never stop them from expressing their creative sides.
So, parents, it is very important to engage in a healthy relationship with your kids. You are the person they can depend on and you should believe in their confidence level and on their work too. Give them all the freedom and encouragement they need and you will witness how good your kids make choices and decisions in their life.
