In one of the online contests that I joined, the question to be answered was “How you make your child a champion?”
I simply said “Let them do what they want to achieve.“
I have two girls. They are opposite. It seldom happens when the two share the same interest but whatever it may be, I make sure that I support what they want to achieve.
In the case of my eldest, she was only 3 y/o when she had shown her interest in music, particularly in playing the violin. At first, I was hesitant thinking it will only last till she finds something else more interesting.
I’m glad I supported her all the way, and that makes me one proud mom each time I hear her play a piece. So if you are going to ask me would you also give in if your youngest ask you to buy one of those cheap electric mandolin at musician’s friend? My answer would be the same. Yes.
