Question and answer
describe how you would work with a child or young person to help them to see how they can build on their intersts, talents and abilities
The first thing parents can do, is help their children explore and discover various talents. Notice the things your child likes. Comment on them. [ "You really love to watch bugs." "You seem to have a talent for making friends." "I love the way you express yourself with finger paints." Loving parents can be very helpful social mirrors by giving specific, positive feedback to their children. Most children are interested in or collect certain things. If your child loves insects, help him or her collect them. Get books about them from the library. Buy an ant colony. Go on bug safaris together.
Ask your child to tell you what he or she has learned. Buy bug posters your child's room. Make displays together of your child's projects and interests. Help your children discover and develop talents by noticing and supporting their interests. At some point, most children compare themselves to other children. They might feel inferior to a child who is good at playing ball. They might feel like a failure at poetry. Parents can respond in ways that support all talents. ]
