Encourage your child to blog to document his learning process on the subject of his talent. Do not have him limit himself to just the final results and success stories of his talent development. Why should you encourage him to journal his learning in a public way?
There are three reasons to blog:
- Blogging will train him to speak in his own unique voice.
- Blogging will help him be self-aware and take ownership of his own learning path.
- Blogging will show potential mentors in his field of talent that he has the kind of motivation and seriousness that is deserving of their expert attention.
