If you want to know what else you can do to nurture your child’s talents besides the normal and so very important cheering (‘you can do anything you put your mind to’, ‘way to go, honey’), do this:
Capture and display what they create.
Get a recorder for your budding musicians, video your dancers and thespians, frame the art, bind their latest story….get it captured even in it’s early stages, for these are glimpses of their future, parts of their soul albeit infant and rough.
We are so used to seeing all the finished, professional products that we overlook the beginnings of those works in our friends and families.
Capture the beginning!
