Your kids are always watching and listening even when you think they are in the other room. It is important that you keep this in mind at ALL times. You never know when your words, actions, silence, or interactions may inspire your child’s (do not forget your negative words or actions can play a huge part too) creative outlet.
This very blog did just that with my son, Ethan. I always read my posts to my son for feedback before publishing them. This inspired him and he asked if he could start a blog. I am happy to say he published his first post today and got his blog, ethantbarger.wordpress.com (the mind of a gifted teen) up and running.
I am a proud mom. This proves that your actions or words can spark your child’s interest and creativity.
