Do children seem more talented than ever before or is there more to it?
The reality is, this new generation (I’m talking about babies born in the late 2000’s new) have the technology to easily access information whenever they want. With the fearless mentality that children possess, they quickly adapt to an evolving world which allows them to open their minds to a new way of learning. Though they are in fact bright, I believe there appears to be so many ‘brilliant’ and ‘talented’ children because of the ability to share, like, retweet and follow these little wonders in an instant. Thanks to YouTube and countless other social platforms, we can watch video after video of the youth in action.
Nevertheless, I love watching kids do what they do best…entertain! They will dance, sing, tell jokes and play instruments to their heart’s content. Some do it for a positive reaction from their family, others do it because they know how and they figure everyone can do it too.
We can always count on “The Ellen Show” to showcase these talented little ones. The video below shows a four-year old ripping up the dance floor while his parents and audience cheer him on. I’m realizing that parents can’t help but have a “Toddlers in Tiaras” moment when they watch their children perform on stage. Though that show is so not right, I’ve watched it too many times in disbelief. The show should really be called “Mommas tryin to Make it!”
A special thanks to my manager for introducing me to a great website some time ago.
Inc.com illustrates ways to improve yourself through a wide variety of articles which highlight everything from ” 10 Books every Entrepreneur should read” to “8 things you should not do everyday” and the list goes on.
I make it a point to read at least one of their articles a day. You’d be surprised what you learn or receive confirmation on what you already know!
I would suggest if you’re looking for articles that are interesting and often times thought provoking, check out Inc.com. I guarantee you’ll enjoy their site! If you don’t, you’re on the wrong website.
Ten years ago I decided to share my time with young girls that needed a Big Sister.
Today Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel is recognizing me along with other volunteers for our years of service. It’s been such a joy to be a part of this great organization and all they do – This year is their 100th year in Canada!
Though I was blessed with older siblings and friends who are like family I still felt the same self esteem issues that most girls experience today but I can’t imagine what they go through when social media is factored in.
Dove also has an amazing campaign with commercials that show young girls getting ready to partake in a sport and words are displayed beside their beautiful faces and hopeful eyes stating they won’t continue in their chosen sport and a percentage of them will quit because they’re not happy with their body image.
I’m making it my mission to let children know their worth and the beauty that lies within and shines through them all.
No one is born with self esteem issues. No one is born judgmental. These are all learned behaviors.
We can teach children how to be open-minded and accepting. Let’s make that the learned behavior.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to do all I can for Big Brothers Big Sisters and I’m looking forward to the next 10 years!
