with Felice Gerwitz
Encouraging Your Child – it begins with positive words and a surprise element …
Let me ask, does your child become excited when talking about an invention or figuring out how to repair a tool for the first time? What about the child who wants to take everything apart? How do you encourage creative, imaginative and entrepreneurs in the making without losing your mind? Join Felice as she explains how she encouraged her then, homeschooled daughter to begin writing (translated into a series of successful books – Truth Seeker’s Mystery Series – as well as her discovery about an “unstable element” that became a leading laundry booster years later. No she did not invent it!
Study – Psalm 37:4 – Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
More on ideas here – Developing Great Ideas
Show Notes – Encouraging Your Child:
1. How are great ideas similar to science fair projects?
2. How do you encourage your child when you think the idea may not work?
3. Using the scientific method, ways it can help your child organize their ideas.
4. Brainstorming, a.k.a. Brain Dumping.
Remember: The key to developing great ideas is to have the time to think about it – schedule your homeschool day to allow time for your child to explore their ideas or hobbies.
