Engage Your Child In A Variety Of Intellectual Pursuits
Having your child pursue multiple paths when it comes to knowledge and information is a great quality to inculcate, as it helps your child to have a sampling of a multitude of information and allowing him to pick and choose the area of his interest.
1. Having your child pursue multiple prospects along a single train of thought is a great way to have your child engage in a multi-pronged search for knowledge. When the information that is got from them tally on multiple levels, your little one will be able to link and correlate them effectively, making for a well-rounded learning experience.
2. Make sure that the roads pursued by your child are appropriate for his age and his present level of expertise. Pursuing something that is above one’s skill level is healthy, so long as it is not all blowing over the head of your child like the wind. Not only will this leave your child feeling confused and dazed, but it does in part deflate your little one’s drive to pursue it further, as it seems hopeless to do so for him.
3. Your child looks to you for guidance and knowledge, as do all children look at their parents as sources of inspiration and guidance. Make sure that you are available to your child to hear their doubts and queries and help the resolve them appropriately.
4. Keep in mind, this level of multi-tasking does not come in one go for most kids. Allow your child to take things at his own pace and be positive in your approach and outlook to the same. This ensures that despite difficulty and drawbacks, your child continues to make effort in learning new things!
