I’m not a parent. I can’t even begin to imagine the grief one must put themselves through, at times, ensuring their child is given the best possible start in life. All little people require a solid framework from which to grow into happy, healthy and confident human beings.
Not only is it important to nurture their physical and emotional wellbeing but also to allow them the opportunity to dip their little fingers into a variety of life’s proverbial pies to discover what they are naturally drawn to, where their talents lie and what ignites their little spirits.
It’s these natural talents which will burn a fire within, hence starting a ripple effect whereby they are able to find their little feet in life, gaining a sense of satisfaction, pride and most importantly self-confidence.
I grew up in a family of scholars and intellectuals. It took some time for them to recognise that I was drawn naturally to the creative. Luckily, I eventually found my own way but I imagine my life could have been very different if this had been discovered at a much earlier age.
This is a beautiful video about a remarkably talented, forward thinking and creative young boy who lets his imagination run wild during his school break.
