Dig out the inner artist in your kid

The latest Steve Wozniak quote, “Indians lack creativity” has made rounds over the internet recently. Some agree some don’t, but no one can neglect the potential truth in his quote.

We do lack creativity in some context, we may have the eastern Silicon Valley but we still lack artistic prowess.

Why?

Maybe because the roots of our upbringing are mostly based on the career our parents chose for us, or the society made us opt.

We may live successful lives now but we can’t be creative in our fields, because no one made us opt for creativity and innovation.

Methods to get your kids creative

  • Not giving them a blank paper to draw or write

Think about it, if you are given a blank paper and then asked to draw something or write about something, how much time will you take to decide and then draw? Give them objectives, goals and tutorials to follow and learn, then leave them alone and let their inner creator rise.

  • Resources in abundance

Ample resources create ample possibilities which result in a better craft. Providing your kids resources and help can often lead to a more developed thinking process and mental creativity.

  • Controlling your expectations

Never cage your kids in your expectations; they are not even in their teen years yet. Being a parent is a tough task but being a friend isn’t. Try being a friend and dig out the inner artist in your kid

  • Encouraging the results

“Kids are born thinking out of the box. If you want to see a kid get creative, my suggestion is to give them a handful of toys or other materials, along with an interesting problem to solve, and plenty of time and sincere attention.” – Hannah Yang ( Yale University )
