Raising Compassionate Children

Helping Kids Find Their Passion

There has been much talk about helping kids find their passion so that they can live a full life, but how do you help your kids find that spark?  As a parent you can open the door to experiences and opportunities. You can encourage your kids to try different things and to always be curious about life. But you can’t force your kids to love something. However, maybe one of the most important things you can do as a parent is to study your kids and take note of what kinds of activities make them excited and happy. These 18 blog articles will give you some ideas on how to help your kids find their passion.


Introduce Your Kids to Options

Many parents let their kids try out all sorts of different activities in order to expose them to different experiences, which is a smart idea. If kids are never exposed to different activities, they’ll never know if something makes them happy or not. Talk to your kids and find out what they are interested in, then see if you can help them learn more about it. These blog posts will explain more about how to introduce your child to various experiences.

Be Encouraging

Cheer for your child when they are participating in something new, but not too much.  Kids are smart and will know if you are pushing them in a certain direction. Stand back and let your child make up his own mind about an activity. Encourage him to stick with anything that is new long enough to get a good feel for it. For ways to encourage your child without pushing him, take a look at the suggestions in these blog entries.


Observe Your Child’s Reactions

Be a quiet observer of your child and see what he likes and what excites him. Try to avoid nagging your child about finding his passion. The pressure you put on him may make him say that something is his passion just to make you happy; you will know when something makes your child light up and he can’t get enough of it.
