SHICHIDA METHOD: 100 wisdoms how to develop your child‘s intellectual ability/七田式・本当の知力をつける100の知恵

[5. From early age, children need to tackle a variety of programs and courses to fully develop their abilities.]

Are you letting your children try out different activities such as sports or cultural courses?

When children are born, all their abilities are locked in drawers.

However, trying a variety of programs from early age can open their drawers and release children’s natural abilities.

For example, if a child starts taking piano lessons, his/her drawer of musical ability will be unlocked.

Even after a long time, the drawers of their abilities continue to stay unlocked.

Therefore, when children have the motivation to learn more, they can open their drawers whenever they want and use that talent.

Because his/her basic ability has developed until that time, children can expand their talents unlimitedly.

To help children unlock their talents, parents should encourage their children to take part in a variety of programs as long as the parents can afford the time and effort and their children are willing to.

【⑤習い事の勧め】

子どもに習い事をさせていますか?

子どもは生まれた時には、全ての可能性の引き出しに鍵がかかっている状態です。

しかし、例えばピアノを習わせてあげると、ピアノや音楽に関する引き出しの鍵が開きます。

後は本人がやる気になった時に、その引き出しをいつでも自由に開けたいときに開けて、才能を開花させていけばいいのです。

能力はある程度その時点までに育ててあげているので、後は子どもが思った通りに無限の可能性が広がっていくのです。

経済的・時間的に余裕がある限り、いろいろなことをやらせてあげましょう。
