The modern ingenuity of children does not tire me to surprise. For the time being, I’ll just get together to join something, and my children are already running with rubber bands and ribbons. And they do not run for help, but brag about their hand-made articles.
Weaving rezinochek captured not only all children, but also adults. While relaxing on the beach, I often saw mummies spinning rubber sticks to their daughters. But while I mastered this technique, my daughter was already ahead of me. Now she is my teacher. And different techniques will show, and pictures will tell.
Where such abilities come from, I don’t know. Children, of course, grasp everything on the fly, this is understandable. And on the street now everyone weaves these rezinochki, here and my baby joined.
I always thought that I ride the bike better than anyone. In childhood I went to the veloschool. I always had a feeling of speed and a desire to move forward. I knew how to ride a bicycle without using my hands, in various non-standard ways.
When my boys grew up, I bought each a bike, and we began to travel together in the countryside. Then the boys began to ride bicycles and for no reason. Such skating led to the fact that I could not keep up with them. A velodrome was built near our house, and now I am there only as a spectator. And boys do all sorts of pirouettes on bikes without me.
I still went to music school as a child. And I really wanted my musical ability to be transferred to one of the children. Even the piano they brought from her mother. But the older the children got, the more I became upset. Nobody wanted to make music. Until a certain point.
This year I noticed a great desire to sing with my younger son. And noticed by chance. He sang some melody in front of the TV, watching the music channel.
Now he knows more songs than me. He sings them everywhere – at the computer, on the street, in front of the TV. And then he walked around me. I do not have time for my children.
This is either the time or the children have gone others, as my mom likes to say.
And I notice this tendency not only in my family.
I have a girlfriend, whose daughter in 3 years draws so that we never dreamed of! And her mother is trying to help her daughter. But, in my opinion, she should just not interfere.
Another friend makes crafts from paper. Weaves baskets from newspapers and vases. Once, when she came home from work, she discovered that her little basket was already finished! And the 8-year-old daughter finished the difficult job. She watched her mother’s creativity from the side, and then once – and showed herself.
Children are very capable and talented now. Yes, and such a variety of ideas for creativity just does not leave our kids a choice! I want to try everything, sheathe and tie everything up. In my time we were glad to have a set of colored paper. And my daughter is already given a quilling set!
And how do your kids show themselves? Tell that! 🙂
