Our children are what we have a feeling of pride for. In addition, personally we, adults, are the most vivid role model. They absorb with love everything they see, decisions, words, manners and emotions. But still there are things we are to learn from them. Children are real treasure, which is not touched by time, envy or Hard feelings.
Every child is unique. Just let a child create. Yes, perhaps, drawings on the walls do not make us, grown up and practical, happy. This is how our children decorate their corner, their private world. They see it in these colors, among made up animals and even in bold cycles, drawn chaotically. Children are not afraid to make things unique. Sundogs or a drop of rain on their faces makes them smile. They see a miracle within such things, creativity and happiness. We may do our best to see every day things with an open heart. We can but the main thing condition here is our sincere wish.
Children are told in school and kindergarten what to do and what is better not to. We are put into frames of public opinion. Self-expression is a sign of the fact that you might be misunderstood and to be included to the list of social outcasts. In our soviet childhood we were not instilled a desire to be unique. We were taught to be on-stream. At the time, creativity is your ticket into a happy future. There is a crazy competition at work; everyone wants to be in the 10 best when it comes to love. You are lost without creativity…
Here are a few pieces of advice how not to kill a talented personality within your child:
1. Let Your Child Have a Freedom of Choice
You should not impose a child sports groups, music schools or acting classes. Your child is not you. Your child has different temperament, different desires and needs. You have forgotten already what it is like to get up early in the, go to school and do home tasks every day. Your child needs a welcome sight in the form of free time and pleasant thing to do. Pleasant for the child but not for you. Let the kid choose how to spend free time. Let him or her make mistakes, change groups and sections. Your success is a caravan of personal mistakes and victories.
2. Creativity Is Not Always a Process of Time Spending On Your Own
Let children create together. Let it be a game or general school project. Creativity is the process of thinking or creating on one`s own. Creativity can be imaginative. Truth is born in a dialogue. A teamwork gives an opportunity to look at one and the same problem from different angles. The more ideas, the more options for a project`s happy end.
Support All The Beginnings Of Your Child
There is no better thing than support of parents. It is so pleasant when your achievements are supported; Let them be small but still heroic on the part of a child. Come up with a bounty system: medals of family type, family weekends in favorite places of your child. A child should not be afraid to make a mistake, because in such a case he or she will never try what is really interesting for him or her. A child should be sure that if something will not work out, parents would still love him or her and support. If you noticed some new interests, your child has, do it today. The time has come to make the first step to the development of your child.
4. Learn History And Types of Art With Your Child
At least start doing it. A child should realize what s/he likes and dislikes by him/herself. Your child has an opinion and views of his/her own. He might like sewing even though you could do strip plastics all your life or car racing. Activity is a measure of progress. It is everywhere, in everything. The main thing is to give a child to get into everything what might develop and inspire. Remember, creativity is a key of your child`s success, his or her personal and professional success.
5. Do Not Put A Choice Between Science And Art. Combine Them
Your child should learn to perceive information in school, go to tutors but do not deprive him or her from development spiritually. It is wrong to decline sport group because of English teacher. Sport is going to help your child to feel more comfortable. Art is to help your child feel comfortable in society, to take decisions, share point of view. Help your child to make life brighter and simpler.
6. Sometimes You Should Give Your Child Time To Be Bored
When bored, a child finds something what can get him/her interested, entertain. It is a wonderful time for new starts ups. There is a constant movement with an intense schedule and moments of ab reaction having breaks may lend wings and give a reason to think what is missing.
7. Allow Him or Her to Create In His Own Creative Chaos
Some children simply do not need order; it works in a distracting way, soft-soaping. They want to see the ways of solving problems in chaotic way of things. Chaos for them is a call for society. Of course, order and discipline are important for a child, but ab reaction and time for personal creativity are just necessary. Do not close your kid in the cage. Let him or her fly but remember that s/he is always welcome home.
Curiosity is a strong reason to create something new. The entire world is something of a novelty to children. Showing curiosity, a little hero perceives world and the world will allow the child to live the way s/he wants with time. Our task is to do everything a child had right ideas, principles and believes.
