Raising creative kids makes successful adults
Purpose: doing something creative always takes you somewhere. You start with a goal (purpose) of doing a creative thing and with practice it teaches you to always have a goal/purpose when you start something.
Criteria: you learn a why you choose the small brush instead of the big brush to make the details of your artwork. Practicing this enough, doing something creative teaches our kids to have a criteria for everything. Having criteria= good decision making.
Curiosity: is the mother of invention and creativity. A curious kid becomes a learner, a thinker and a tester. Testing everything is how we learn.
I can see how my stories expand the mind of Taye, my 5-years-old son, because of how he thinks, how solution oriented he is and how purposeful he is.
BY TAYE -5 years old.
The night he recorded that story, was right after a story I told him a story called “How I met the bad, fat, orange cat.” So he used some of those elements for his own story. That is great all on its own, that he can recognize the elements, take them and use them in his own thing is wonderful!
For me, as a parent, one of the most important key elements of his development is creativity.
It’s NOT part of their curriculum of subject they teach.
