Twinkle Khanna knows how to help her kids develop a new talent everyday!
Twinkle Khanna recently shared this common mummy woe on her Instagram with a rather interesting picture of daughter Nitara.
All mothers will agree when I say that family holidays are perhaps the most tiring and often feel like more work than usual. Running around kids, making sure everybody is safe and having a good time and also engaging in kiddie activities all along.
But if you thought you are the only ones going through this, you'd be wrong. Because celebrity mums are no different. Even their vacations and holidays end up being more about running around kids than relaxing.
Case in point was recently made by mum Twinkle Khanna.
The former actor and writer recently shared this common mum woe on her Instagram account.
In the photograph, the five-year-old is seen working in the kitchen, while her mum gloats about a holiday turning into a work day. Take a look.
Along with the photograph, Khanna wrote: "A holiday for her=Double the work for me #MommyMornings (sic)."
But even if sacrificing her own free time means she gets to teach her daughter something new, Khanna is ready to do the needful. In fact, the famous parents have enrolled their daughter in self defense classes as well, apart from other activities.
"Whether she likes it or not, she will have to learn self-defence techniques. I already have a feeling that Nitara’s going to be a little Ninja. There is power in her big brown eyes, and I can’t wait to put that to some good use,” doting dad Akshay Kumar stated some time back.
"She needs to be independent. As a father I would want to be there with her at all times, but I know that’s not possible,” he added.
But with a hectic schedule and fewer days off, how do busy parents manage to teach their kids new skills?
Well, the first step in the process is to identify the talent in your kids. Remember that talent can be everywhere, however, it would require you as parents to dig it out and nurture. So here's how you can begin.
- Watch out for hidden talent: Be on a look out for hidden talents in your kids because as it happens, kids do not necessarily recognise their own talents. And if your kid shows interest in something, for instance, helping you out in the kitchen or playing with utensils, he or she may actually enjoy cooking.
- Let them explore: Provide opportunities for kids to explore their talent and with time get better at it. You can do this by introducing your kid to various vocations to observe what he or she may like the most. Sometimes if the hidden talent is not given enough opportunities, they may actually not flourish or reach their true potential.
- Give them your support: Simply providing them enough opportunities is not enough You must also support and encourage your kids at every step. You may also try letting your kids interact with experts in a particular field so they get motivated and follow suit.
