Are We Guil ty Of Understimating Our Children's Talents

Are We Guilty Of Underestimating our Children's Talents is inspired  by my associate Velma Joseph's Press Release:

"Your Talent Determines What You Can Do. Some People Underestimate Their Talents Or Haven't Yet Put The Work In To Develop Them..."

Every man has his own vocation, talent is the call.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

We all have talents of which we are sometimes not aware unless we find ourselves in situations where we surprise ourselves by naturally acting out those God given talents.

In underestimating our children's talents  - it often begins as you will notice with a child making his marks or drawings at first opportunity by drawing on walls and places you don't want them to put their marks.

Most parents react to this act negatively and I would venture to say angrily, not being cognizant of the fact that their children are expressing themselves and feel good about what they are doing. This is where we err in underestimating our children's talent. They are being creative.

Everyone has a talent hidden somewhere inside them. The trick is finding what your talent is.
Nancy E. Krulik

it is safe to anticipate from very early childhood that they will make their marks or drawings, exhibiting their talents. Before they begin their works of art on your walls or elsewhere you need to set the rules. Providing them with lots of paper and repeat by associating stories why they should be marking or drawing on the paper provided and not anywhere else.

Pay attention and encourage so that you do not underestimate a talent that could develop in later years into greatness and your child recognizing his potential.

So let's say you have a child - yours or one you know, who shows a particular interest in doing something. It could be art; it could be dancing; it could be music or playing an instrument. Whatever the interest shown, what would you do?

Here's what you do

  •  In the case of art for example you expose the child to works of arts by taking him to an appropriate (age wise) exhibition or art studio; provide the tools - water color and or crayons and show interest in whatever the child does.
  •  Dancing? take them to a studio or concert where  young children are dancing and encourage a discussion after.
  •  Music or playing an instrument? They may love to sing or are interested in playing an instrument. Give them the exposure by having them trained to play an instrument or learn music.
When we lack understanding and do not use the opportunity to give them the exposure and guidance we are underestimating our children. In whatever they show an aptitude or are interested in we have a responsibility before they lose interest.

Finally people who have no recognition of their talents, hesitate to find out what they are gifted for or do not  challenge themselves when it comes to doing something they have never done before, underestimate themselves.

 I appreciate you taking the time to read  my shared thoughts.
