Expose children to experience aligned with their interests and intelligences. Tap friends and relatives who share the same interests with your child(e.g. an uncle who is good at graphic design can teach your child about art). Turn your home into a learning ground. If your husband likes tinkering with cars ask your child to help him. If you like gardening or making crafts, show your child your tools and projects. If you have an elder child or nephew who is very good at designing web pages, make your child observe him. Encourage your child to be an apprentice. Expose your child to different places. Even if you do not have money to spare for travel, expose them to new experiences that don’t really cost much. Go to parks and playgrounds. Museums are great places to visit. Even window shopping with the right mindset can open your child to possibilities. Expose your child to business.
