Speaking about the signs that may indicate that your child will have problems with employment in the future, it is necessary to take into account that working conditions will change dramatically in 15-20 years. Simple physical labor will mainly perform the machine.
The same thing will happen with difficulty, which can be replaced by computer programs.
Based on this predictable future, we can already now imagine what qualities and skills can provide a child with the future of a sought-after and popular specialist and which, on the contrary, can become a “stumbling block” in realizing ourselves in adulthood. You can highlight the signs by which you can understand that the child in the future will face difficulties in finding employment:
It may be alarming that the child does not know how and does not like to learn, does not receive pleasure from the knowledge of the new. Moreover, we are not talking about school subjects, but about cognitive activity in life as such.
The child should be interested in something outside of school – in what he will understand, look for sources, ask questions, find adults who can explain something to him, literature or information on the Internet. This is a sign that the child is developing normally, that he has interests and learning abilities.
In order to develop the skills of the child in learning, you should help him find the area that will interest him. First, children may simply not be aware of how many different areas. Secondly, it is possible to present some knowledge in a completely different way – not as books and articles, but, for example, experiments, master classes, etc.
The main thing is not to force the child, but to direct him in accordance with his inclinations.
A bad role in the future of the child can be played by the fact that he does not show interest in communications, interaction with people, management of them. It’s perfectly normal if a child tries to influence other people to do what they need, from parents to friends.
You should not enjoy too much obedience and humility of the child – he must learn to communicate with other people to defend their interests. Many parents face problems in communicating with children.
To solve these problems should be approached with great caution. You should not put pressure on the child and force him to expand the circle of communication, to find him friends.
Just as you should not constantly instill in him to be tougher in dealing with others. The best option would be, again, the development of the interests of the child.
The more skills and abilities he will have, the more interesting it will be to peers. In addition, any achievements and new skills give confidence that also attracts other children.
In addition, all sorts of clubs and sections help to find friends by interests. The only moment is not to go too far, forcing the child to go to all directions that are interesting to you, not to him.
To build a career is most difficult for those who give up too early. Parents should pay attention if the child does not show perseverance in achieving the desired, not trying to get what he wants.
This may indicate a weak character and lack of skills to achieve a positive result. Such skills can also be developed. Try to use a motivation system in which the child will receive something really necessary for him in the case of successful completion of the task.
It is important to choose what the child wants to get so much that he is willing to make an effort. Such a mechanism works much more efficiently than punishment.
It is also a manifestation of willpower that sport develops well. If the child has inclinations to the sport, then help him to choose the section suitable for him according to his age and interests, in which he can succeed.
Not a very good sign is that the child is not interested in any creativity, does not want to engage in creative activities, to invent something new, to demonstrate his author’s view. Creative people have always been and always will be in demand.
Every year creative, unique works will grow in value. However, it is wrong to assume that creativity is an innate gift that only a few have.
It should simply help the child to unleash their creative potential. Moreover, all children have such potential, they just can not always find tools for its implementation. The same master classes and different circles will be suitable in which you can start creating something new.
Now the market has a very large selection of such services, and you can find a direction for any child.
The absolute lack of leadership qualities in a child can lead to the fact that he grows up inert and driven. Signs will be that he is not trying to lead people and take responsibility, telling others how to implement joint plans. This is not always bad, but extreme forms can lead to an irresponsible and submissive person who simply cannot show himself anywhere.
The ability to lead people will always be relevant and sought-after skill. In principle, all previous tips are suitable for the development of such qualities – the more interests and skills a child has, the more confident he is and the wider his circle of contacts.
For the development of charisma, which is important for leaders, good courses are acting classes that help overcome self-doubt and fear of the public.
