“If you can light the spark of curiosity in a child, they will learn without any further assistance” said by Ken Robinson.
A spark that we are anxious to find in our child is the skill or the mere interest that is inbuilt in the child from birth. The more you listen to your child and observe their likes and dislike as an individual the easier you discover their spark. Sparks don’t come on a day just like that; maybe we discover their spark one fine day. Before you identify the spark in your child, there are a few questions to which you need to answer to yourself.
• Do you give enough time to your child?
• Do you know his favorite sport?
• Do you listen to him when he speaks to you?
• When was the last time you watched him play with glee?
• Do you spend quality time with your kid?
• Does your child know that you are always there for him?
Every child has its own freedom to research and has its own space to explore and find their spark in their own favorite field. Children tend to find their interests in everything they are exposed to but develop only on their very favorite ones that they are keen about. A few kids spark out too early as 5 and a few even find their spark by 15. There are a few techniques for analyzing the spark in your child, which we will discuss further.
