My beloved child is interested in everything in the world. He is equally interested in drawing, cooking and technology. Over time, the son began to pay attention not only to bright and unknown things, but also to ordinary, ordinary objects, he became more prudent, attentive. And now I can see his real interest in some things, which in the future may develop into talent.
Standard Boyish Interests
My son, like all boys, is interested in technology, construction tools. He is happy to help me hammer in nails and is involved in rearranging furniture. Help is manifested in the interest in these very nails and hammer. I myself do not allow myself to participate in the process so far, but I also do not forbid my child to carefully examine all the studs and screws in the house.
He wonders how the hinges are arranged, how the drawers of the table are moved, how the wheels of the coffee table work. In general, the son shows typical male inclinations.
And besides this, a child with joy can spend hours hanging around in a piece of iron in the garage of my faithful. They sawed the firewood together and removed the wheels from the bike. And I see that my son is interested. He is curious to know what is inside the motor, why the gears are moving in this way and not otherwise.
And knowing my faithful, I can say with confidence that the love of technology is also a kind of talent. My favorite can talk all day about motorcycles. And can these same motorcycles disassemble to the last screw. And my son is also interested. True, I still do not allow too deep into this topic. And children’s interest ends with another broken toy, over which an attempt was made to see what was inside.
On the other hand, my child has an amazingly developed fantasy. I am inclined to believe that in all theories about genetics and heredity there is some grain of truth. And now I see confirmation in my own son.
I love to draw. This is not only a hobby. I have been drawing since my childhood, and then I also studied at an interior designer. The father of the child also draws well. Only I have a craving for bright and colorful images, and my ex-husband is more developed clarity and brevity, even severity in images.
This craving for beauty in our child also manifests itself, only in a slightly different form. Yes, he draws, and draws well. Compared to his early work, he is doing just fine now. In his pictures there is an idea and some meaning. Here are just a picture for him – it’s just a hobby.
But real talent manifested itself in modeling. In kindergarten, they are often engaged in modeling clay. Son delighted. He not only likes him – at his age he is already doing great. Personally, I still try to stay away from modeling – this is not mine. And my son has a talent. It can be seen now.
I am very happy about this. And I know that with proper practice, he will make amazing masterpieces. But I don’t know how to push him towards development without breaking his interest. If you turn an exciting lesson into an endless training session and the race for the ideal – the child will just give it up.
Now I just encourage and praise him (which, unfortunately, my parents did not do in my childhood – all my creative inspirations were perceived with hostility). But I want my passion to grow into something more, so that my son would really draw inspiration from his talent and create something special.
Maybe it’s too early to talk about it? I do not know how to push the child to further develop his talent. It’s too early for circles – I will think about it only for the next autumn. And at home I try not to upload – the daily classes of the same can quickly bore him. But what to do? If you have thoughts on this, tell me?
