My nephew is turning 5 this year and is very talkative since he was 3, he thinks like a 40 year old man. My niece is turning 4 also this year, she’s very good in drawing, loves cosmetics and animals. When she was 3 years old, her words were not clear when she’s talking. We always tease her and ask if she’s from other country because we can’t understand her. Elijah will turn 3 this September and is very good with almost everything, well I am not saying this because I am his mother but because it is the truth.
The three kids may show similarities but they excel in different field. Svetlana can be a great painter or veterinarian someday for showing interest in a very young age. Hendrix can be a race car driver or judge, he recognizes all kinds of car from oldest to the newest in the market and he can defend himself when someone is trying to insult him. Elijah shows interest in different things so I can’t tell what he can be.
Some kids may not show interest in studying but let’s not pressure them. It takes time and a lot of patience. Our children need us more than anyone else. We, parents should understand and focus on their needs not on our own desire. Never compare them with other kids, every child is unique. They are special in their own ways. Let us not worry about the future, focus each day and make the most of it so there will be no regrets in the end.
