It might seem like "helping your child become talented" is an oxymoron. Talent, after all, is inherent, right? Sort of. In one sense of the word, talent is certainly inherent. But in another, perhaps even more important sense, it's largely dependent upon the child's environment. So even though some children are definitely born with inherent abilities and gifts, there are lots of things you can do everyday that will help your child be talented later in life, in one form or another.
Parents have the incredible, intimidating job of raising their children, drawing out their talents, and encouraging them in whatever their passions may be. And amazingly, you don't have to wait until your child realizes their own talents to implement this kind of nurturing environment into your home. You can start when they're young — babies even — by being mindful of the things you introduce them to, what you bring into your home, and the environment you create around them.
You don't have to expect your kids to grow up to be tiny prodigies, but you can implement an environment that encourages exploration, growth, creativity. In essence, all of the things that talent, inherent or not, is made of.
