Helping Your Child Find Their Passion

Passion is what drives us and shapes our identity. It can help your child to lead a long, successful career and a fulfilled life too. An alternative school in London shares 5 tips for helping your child find their passion below.

child reading

With books spanning every hobby and niche that you can think of, you can help your child to find their calling. Whether that be butterfly farming or astronomy. A trip to the local library or bookstore can help your child to explore a vast range of interests and find something that enthrals them. In the process, your child can expand on their reading skills and improve the quality of their English, world knowledge and perform better at school.

Extra-Curricular Activities
After school clubs and activity groups can help your child explore their talents and find hobbies that they enjoy. This is a great place to start and can help them to learn more about activities such as sports and music from those that are already immersed in them like their teachers and peers.

Allow Your Child to Be Themselves
A lot of parents work hard to give their children the childhood that they never had but in doing so try to make up for the things that they never got to experience as a child. Pushing your child into different activities can stop them from finding their passion and force them into things that they don’t enjoy.

Find a Mentor

If your child has an existing passion for something, you can help them by finding them a knowledgeable mentor. They will be able to help them explore their career aspirations, guide them and act as a positive role model.

Explore Your Own Passions
Working on your own passions and hobbies can set a great example for your child to do the same, allowing them to find a career that brings them joy.
