One of the MANY struggles we face as moms...how do we nurture them to be the best they can be.?. I certainly don't have any answers but can tell you what I do. I have 4 children from 21-5 and have definitely changed my approach over the years.
With my oldest I involved her and put her in front of those things that she naturally loved...reading,writing, socializing, dancing. What she struggled with we didn't involve her in or helped her through when necessary(if a school subject).
My oldest is grown and doing what she loves. She is in a very social field (International Business), she travels often and she loves it. There are areas she is very strong in and areas that are very weak, that she is now trying to strengthen.
With my others, again by around 2-5 yrs were very strong in certain areas. I realized these things come natural to them and will always come easy for them and when given a choice these are the things they will do...now I focus on activities that strengthen those weaker areas.
For example, I rarely read to my daughter who was reading long before she started kindergarten. She already has a love for reading. We spend our time cooking and playing games that encourage math skills. She has music lessons because she loves music but I always encourage them to do 1 thing they love and one thing that will grow them and be a challenge.
I don't think you will question what your child's natural tendencies are because they will always find a way to do them. The only time I have ever seen value in focusing on one area is for scholarships and I always encourage my kids to go for the academic one...least amount of injuries and best pay-off long term. A lot of prayer never hurts!
