What Interests You?

What Interests You?

Helping our children to feel good about their interests as a person will allow them to pursue their unique interest as well. It is important for our children to not follow every other person’s path because they might miss the very thing that will allow them to live fully alive in their passions. As parents, we get a unique opportunity to encourage our children and help them develop their gifts, talents and pursue their unique interest by being intentional in asking them these questions.

Question 1

If you could be a bug, a cheetah, or fly like a bird what would you pick?

r

Discover

The answer to this question is not as important as to the “why” they picked what they picked. Let their minds and imaginations run wild as they explain why it would be cool to one over the other. Talk about the advantages and the disadvantages of their choice and how they would deal with the obstacles.

QUESTION 2

If you could be an explorer, an athlete or a pilot what would you choose?

r

DISCOVER

Help your children understand that they can do things in life that are even more amazing and exciting than bugs, cheetahs and birds. Tell them that they have been given more abilities, senses and brains to do extraordinary things.

QUESTION 3

What one thing would you like to try doing now that would interest you?

r

DISCOVER

The answer may surprise you. Encourage them to think and dream about the possibilities. The answers may be geared toward science, technology, engineering, math, music, sports, dance, exploration etc. What ever they choose, encourage them to purse it and help them along the way.

Reflect

Danielle and I have talked with many adults who were disappointed in not pursuing their interest and passions in life. Many have said they did what their parents wanted them to do and not what they wanted mostly because of financial reasons. One thing we have learned and have taught our children is to follow first their passions and the money will follow. In some cases, it’s not about the money at all but living out the very purpose for which you were created.
