Hidden Talents
As parents we often steer our children into what we like, thinking they will naturally like it too. Sometimes that works out but what you learn quickly is that your kids are not you! Nothing brought this home more than when our 7th Grader, Alex, came home one day and said he wanted to stay after school and work on poem for a writing contest. What? Where did this come from? Kirk’s mother and grandfather were writers so perhaps there is some inherited talent there, but it wasn’t evident. Alex spent many hours perfecting his poem and we put his poem in a big box stuffed with other children’s entries at the local library. Well, he won 2nd place in his division. Again, What? Picture parents with mouths open. Somewhere in you there is a hidden talent that needs to shine, and we encourage you to reach, take a chance, and find it!
Happy trails,
Tina and Kirk
