Encouragement and motivation will help your child bring out the best in him, with respect to any activity. This will nourish his growth and will make him want to perform better just to make you proud. Your child will feel especially happy to receive your appreciation.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Make sure to spend time with your child as he is playing all by himself. No toy can replace the interest a parent takes in their child while playing. This will help you understand the kind of games he mostly prefers and the toys he loves the most.

2. Motivate your child as he performs a certain activity. A little clapping and cheering will encourage your child while he is doing pretty much anything. This can be as simple as colouring to playing a game of catch-catch with his friends.

3. Understand when a certain activity means a lot to your child. It may mean less to you that he has taken an interest in something. But, instead of demotivating him, try and support his wish to perform it as he may turn out to be really good at it.

4. If you find that your child is getting quite good at something but requires a little pushing, see how he would like to go to a class and learn a few things that can enhance his skills.

5. Support your child no matter what. If you feel that the interest your child has taken upon is inappropriate, then do stop him. Otherwise, make sure to give him all that he needs to become well versed in it.
