Status check people! We’re about a month into resolution season and I’d like to see a show of hands of who’s still going strong? Commitments are tough but almost always rewarding when they’re kept. OK, put your hands down. I hope each of you is able to stay the course and maintain your sanity along the way. One of my resolutions was to be nicer to my husband! Let me tell you ladies, it’s no cake-walk with that guy. But I’m trying. And believe it or not, it IS very rewarding. Plus, it just might bode well for me with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. (I know, I’m bad!) February also means my baby girl is turning another year older. My oldest, Mylee, turns 8 this year and it’s becoming a hard pill to swallow that she is no longer a baby. This past month we cut her hair and now she just looks like a little grown up. It was for good reason, though, as she set a goal to grow her hair long enough to donate to Locks of Love – a non-profit organization that treats children with hair-loss disabilities. A full 10 inches she lopped off! I am very proud of her. Speaking of babies, be sure to check out the page inside that outlines our “Beautiful Baby” Facebook contest. Post your pics all month long to our Facebook page and we’re going to grab a couple of sweet, local Grandma’s to pick their favorite three. (Note: All grandmas are fair & honest!) It should be fun and I’m super-excited to see all of the wonderful kiddos of our community. Under 2 only, please! And finally, we celebrate President’s Day. It falls around the birthday of our first President George Washington and is intended to honor the highest position in our government. But, if you’re not into to any of that than you can celebrate “Super Big Sales at the Mall Day” with me! Retailers love an excuse to put stuff on sale and I love them for it! For other great ways to save, just walk your fingers through this month’s fantastic issue. We’ve also got a wonderful article on nurturing your child’s gifts from a local teacher and dear friend of mine. Enjoy!

EXPLORING AND NURTURING

Our Children’s Gifts

by Rebekah Hinkle

4

FEBRUARY 2012

www.LocalLifeTX.com


Parents in the Metroplex have no shortage of options when it comes to finding and nurturing their children’s gifts. So how can parents ensure that we’re nurturing our children’s gifts in a way that is healthy – and sane? The answer is two-fold: we have to be certain we’re tuning into each individual child’s interests, and we have to be willing to set limits. LISTEN

Parents can begin by listening to our children. We shouldn’t be surprised at how well they can often articulate their own interests and a desire to pursue them. For example, when your daughter comes home from school talking about playing basketball in PE and asks if she can play on a team, help her find out. If she starts talking about how she wishes she could be in Girl Scouts and sell cookies like her friend, help her look into it.

IF NOT YES, TRY WHY?

Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as giving an immediate “yes” every time. If your son asks to be a part of an activity you’re not sure about, it’s tempting to go right to, “No because…” Instead, try taking a deep breath and asking,

“Why?” When there’s a reasonable answer, it may be worth pursuing. On the other hand, if the reason is valid, but the activity is still not an option, try brainstorming other ways to pursue the same goal. Maybe it’s not financially possible to take individual voice lessons, but the school has a choir he could join. Modeling a willingness to listen to our children and find creative solutions can cultivate invaluable life skills for them. This process of nurturing our children’s gifts goes beyond more than the gifts themselves!

TRY SOMETHING

Some children aren’t as certain about their interests or may have doubts about their abilities. Children who don’t ask to try new activities

may need you to make suggestions: “Let’s go try an art class together this weekend.” “Would you like to try out a gymnastics class for a few weeks?” It probably won’t take long to see whether or not she enjoys a new activity. A one-time class can either be repeated or discontinued. If it wasn’t a hit, she can try something else next month! Unless it’s causing serious problems for your child, it’s probably best to keep a commitment to a team until the end of a season. In the meantime, a child might improve and realize he liked it better than he originally thought. On the other hand, he can always try another team sport next season. Experts actually say that a child who quits an activity once may well circle back to it. So if Santa brought a much-desired guitar that is now sitting permanently in the corner, just let it sit for a while. One day he may pick it up again and be ready to commit to learning to play.

WATCH

Sometimes children are less aware of their own talents, and the parent can help by simply watching. Take every chance you can to watch what your child does in her free time. A child who can entertain herself for long periods of time by drawing might like to try the art club at school, while a child who builds might like to try sculpting at the local art studio. Does your child constantly sing to herself? Does she like to help navigate on car trips? Does he love reading, running, or trying to pick out a tune on the piano? Many of our local schools have clubs or classes to develop each of these interests. Find out what your school offers! Parents can also provide chances for children to explore. Consider a family trip to the art or science museum, or visit the local gardening center together when it’s time to spruce up the garden. Watch and see how your child responds to new experiences, and give him the freedom to pursue what sparks an interest.


RULE OF THREE

The biggest challenge a parent may face is limiting how many interests your child pursues. Some child psychologists recommend the Rule of Three. This means that each child in the family may only be involved in up to three organized activities… and yes, school counts as one of them.

Enforcing such a limit may prove to be challenging, if not for our children, for many of us! However, the experts have found that people can only successfully track three commitments at once.

NO PRESSURE

Some parents you’ll meet would suggest that your child needs to have settled on and fully committed to his destiny by age 5. Not true. How many of us have developed and excelled in interests that we developed long after the elementary years? We can all continue to grow and discover our gifts as long as we’re willing to try, and this is what we can hope to teach our children. If we’re committed to exploring and supporting their individual interests within healthy limits, this process can be rewarding for all of us. Rebekah Hinkle is a local educator and mother of three. www.LocalLifeTX.com
