When raising kids, it can be hard to figure out what they're interested in. It's easy for children to jump from one hobby to the next, from one obsession to another. So how can you tell if your child really loves something? You often hear parents refer to their children as "natural-born performers" or say that they love the spotlight. That's because there are early signs your kid belongs on stage, and if you pay close attention, you'll be able to see them.
My mother claims I've been dramatic since the day I was born. She also adds that my projection abilities have always been impressive, starting with how loud I wailed when I came out of the womb.

Determining whether or not your child belongs on stage, or whether you want them to belong on stage can be tricky.

From how well they sell those crocodile tears, to how they react to to situations big or small, read on to discover the early signs your child belongs on stage.
