HOW TO IDENTITY YOUR TALENT
Some talents may in future be passion and may be developed into a career e.g. a girl may be talented or gifted in craft and may become a fashion designer in future.
Parents/guardians at times may confuse a talent of a child/student & pre conceive of what is worth learning and what is worth pursuing. It’s therefore wise to give children different options, and time to pursue a variety of things, activities that help them make a sound decision and that comes from within their heart.
Each child is interested in different things, it is worth to note different things your child is interested in, this will help the parent see value, in something that maybe had not been seen before. E.g. how do your kids spend their free time, what are their hobbies, interest or passion? Do they like animals, cooking, art or drawing, fashion, dancing, photography, reading etc .
Hobby is an activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure e.g. hobby of reading, horse riding, gardening, cooking, travelling, music, video gaming. It’s a pursuit outside one’s regular occupation engaged especially for relaxation.
Career is an occupation undertaken for a significant period of a person’s life and with opportunities for progress. At times talent can become a career e.g. a student who likes to dismantles toys etc. and re assembles them may want to be a mechanic/mechanical Engineer, or loves farm animals may become a veterinary.
