How do kids decide what they are interested in and drawn to? How much responsibility do we take in the decision or allow the child to decide the path?
I think as parents we take the role of leading our children to a myriad of interests and watch to see which bloom or bomb. Most times our job will be to help them try again or say it’s okay to try something new.
In our family we have watched lots of interests bloom then fall by the wayside while others developed into lifelong pursuits.
