Your Child’s Small Interests Can Make a Big Impact

Encouraging a child… there are no short cuts.

If I had realized how true that was many years ago when I encouraged a daughter to  dream big with little Artist Trading Cards, I may never have encouraged her at all.

If I knew then that I would invest–and still am investing–more hours than I could have imagined into her passion for little art cards, well, the journey would have ended before we even started cutting and coloring. But there are no shortcuts to any place worth going, and this has been a fun ride.

Tauna asked me to share the story over at Proverbial Homemaker today. There you’ll find simple thoughts on encouraging children in small ways that will have a huge impact.

Turns out, his or her minuscule interest, if you encourage it, may lead your child to help others in ways you’d never think of otherwise. So please glance, and let me know what you think…
