From an early age our future interests are expressed. Some children may be interested in exploring their feelings and their friend’s feelings, which tells us they may be interested in psychology as adults. Some children may be more about the way cars look, and they may go into the manufacturing and design business. Other children may love fossils and show early signs of loving science and archaeology.

As we grow our environment polishes our traits. It begins to cement who we are, and shape us into the adults we will become. It’s important for parents, and all adults, to identify these interests and nurture them.

Don’t try to force your child to be a small version of you. It’ll end up confusing them, and impeding their progress for a successful future. Everyone is unique, and your children are no different.

Our school system tries to create a one size fits all solution to education. That simply doesn’t work. Some kids won’t need calculous. Other kids may love it and need it for their future careers. We can’t rely on the school systems to find our children’s needs and find ways to challenge them.

If a child doesn’t feel challenged they will become bored, and end up being disruptive and cause problems.

Find ways to challenge your child. Push their interests, and make sure they feel fulfilled. The sooner they dive into their interests then the further ahead of everyone else they will be when it comes time for them to enter the real world.

On this episode of Have It All we are joined by Steve Sisler, behavioral profiler, for part 2 of his interview. Steve dives deeper into how people work, exploring childhood development as well as digging into the different types of personalities.

“With your children you have to start experimenting, putting them in situations, and see what happens.” -Steve Sisler
